Back in June, my Mother inlaw and one of her sisters called me to see if I could make a cake for their sister's 60th birthday. It only had to be for six people and I had free reign to create what ever I wanted. Below is what I whipped up.
Chocolate cake, with coffee buttercream and raspberry filling, covered in chocolate fudge rosettes. The roses are from my garden before the Japanese beetles could attack. The little bird is made from fondant to finish off the look.
