I always like to make pretty cakes for my mom’s birthday, so this year I decided to try out the full rose cake.

It turns out that it’s actually pretty easy to do. I just started with a simple chocolate cake and iced over the whole thing with a thin coat as a base. Then I just started making roses the same way that I would on the top of a cupcake, trying to keep them as close together as possible. There end up being a few small gaps between the roses, so I just piped a few little flowers in between them to fill in any spaces. Then to finish off the cake I added some pink and white sugar pearls and a little disco dust for a glittery finish!
