A friend of mine put an order in for a cake for his partner for her birthday recently. She’s originally from Italy and he wanted an Italian themed cake to surprise her with. I got to work on the white and red flowers (tutorial here) and used green butter cream to make the colours of the Italian flag. Once the flowers had dried up, I assembled them on top of the cake and piped (using a star tip) green butter cream on the sides. The chocolate was a chocolate sponge cake filled with chocolate fudge butter cream. Yum!
And this is what I ended up with!
