I made this cake for a dear friend for her Mother’s 80th birthday last summer. She wanted a simple, elegant cake and this buttercream rosette swirl design fit the bill.

rose-cake-1 rose-cake-2It’s a 3-layer 8″ sour cream almond cake with raspberry mousse filling, covered in raspberry flavored buttercream with swirls made with a Wilton 1M tip.  The pictures don’t show it very well, but the swirls were actually pink ombre (graduated darker at the bottom to lighter at the top).  I added pink pearls to give a little shimmer and made a monogram plaque with her initials and age from homemade marshmallow fondant.


Pink ombre rosette cake…no better way to say “I love you…”

Happy birthday, Lisa’s dear mother!
