Golden Rose Cake

So, it's been a while... We've had chickenpox and been away for a large amount of the past couple of months, but the spots are gone & I'm back to the cakes.

This one was for a coeliac lady so it was all gluten free, lemon on the top and vanilla for the bottom tier.
She requested golden yellow roses - actually I think it was golden showers roses but googling that made all sorts of horrible things come up!

I hope the colour was OK for her, it's so difficult to get an exact replica in icing & there's a lot of shades of yellow!

I baked this cake the other day
With my girls, it was delicious - so dense and moist, I followed this recipe You should totally try it - it was really fab. I won't bother with the recipe for the frosting, even my six year old wouldn't eat much of it, it was so sweet! Stick to a ganache instead.

What's your favourite cake recipe? I'm always looking for new ones to try!


  1. Wow! Your roses are lovely, I'm sure she was thrilled. Wonderful colour. And that chocolate cake... Mmmm Mmmm Mmmmmmm! Looks delish! I'm new to baking - in fact I've done more decorating than baking! - so no tried and tested recipes here [yet! ;)], only a simple cupcake recipe x
