acelightning: golden birthday cake with gold rose and tall gold candle (birthday cake)
[personal profile] acelightning
Here's a birthday cake I made recently (name defaced to protect the individual's privacy). It's a 6" round lemon-vanilla cheesecake with a very creamy texture, and a golden-white color from the eggs and cream; instead of the traditional cinnamon-graham-cracker crust, I use a very thin layer of spongecake, lightly flavored with cinnamon. It is decorated with a marzipan rose I made and then painted with edible golden "luster dust", a golden leaf to match, and a tall gold-colored candle. I used glittery black writing gel, but you can't see the glitter in the picture. And there is a border of buttercream icing rosettes around the bottom, because the edge of the spongecake didn't look neat.

Everybody said it was delicious, and they were right :-D

ETA: I swear it wasn't that blurry when I uploaded it! What did Dreamwidth do to my photo?!
