My Pink Rose Cake

I love the blog i am baker.  Amanda over there creates some really beautiful cakes and all sorts of yumminess.  When I am looking for something fun to make, or something challenging, her blog is the first place I look for inspiration.  When she posted her Rose Cake Tutorial back in February, I couldn't wait to make one of my own!  So, when my niece turned 15 in April and her mom asked me to bake a cake for her, I jumped at the chance.

Here is Amanda's amazing cake: 
She can do some seriously awesome things with the inside of a cake too!

And here is my version: 

Lauren's mom wanted something pretty and girly, so I colored my icing pink. I was/am so happy with how this cake turned out! It is one of, if not my all time favorite cake that I have made.  The best part is that it was SO easy to do.  You only have to use one icing tip, (a 1M), and you get such a stunning result.

I have also made a couple versions of Amanda's ruffle cakes too, which were inspired by Martha Stewart's Ruffle Tower Cake.  I made a Christmas Tree cake like hers last Christmas and it was super easy too.  Unfortunately, I don't think I got and good pictures of mine, but if I happen to stumble across one, I'll be sure and post it.

The next cake tutorial of Amanda's that I would love to try is her Hydrangea cake.
Isn't is pretty? I love hydrangeas. I can't wait to give it a try. Now I just need a good reason to bake one. Like a birthday. Or a bridal shower. Or a Saturday.

If you haven't checked out i am baker, you really should!

Your cake looks so fabulous! I think I'd never cut into it for fear of ruining a piece of art! Congrats!

Your cake is beautiful. I would very much love if you could show me how to do that. I've been eyeing all those ribbon and rose cakes out there. So beautiful!
