60th Birthday Rolled Rose Cake

My First ever fancy cake.
This cake I made as a Suprise for my Mum. It was brought out during a meal at a restaurant, and my Mum had asbolutely no idea! Despite smuggling it into the restaurant in front of her and talking to the staff about it for a while!

This cake was quite a challenge for me because I had originally hoped to buy a ready made, ready iced cake and just decorate it, but at £15 for a 6" cake, I just could comprehand spending that amount of money. So I bought the ingredients (and extra!) and made my own.

The flowers on the top were very very easy to make. I bought some specialist flower making icing, rolled it out very thin and treated it just like paper. I even wondered if I could cut the icing using my Making Memories slice? If I had more time, I would probably have tried it!
I cut circles using cookie cutters then used a knife to cut spirals. Rolled the up, and left them to dry for 24hours. I cut a leaf template, made veins with a kebab skewer and bent them.

I had lots of lovely comments about my cake, some even suprised I had made the cake myself, let alone the flowers!
As well that this cake turned out, I do not think cake making/decorating will become a new hobby/career anytime soon.
