Rose Cake

There’s two birthdays in the family for March, mother-in-law and sister. For my sister birthday, I’ve made a cake decorated with swiss meringue buttercream roses. Revision for my piping. I also tried to do colour graduation. Ha ha… Lesson learnt: Should prepare the different coloured cream is bowls first in order to achieve better graduation. Rather than mixing along as I finished piping one layer…

The cake is a basic genoise sponge cake with raspberry jam and vanilla swiss meringue buttercream. Did not soak the sponge in syrup…opps… very dry. Luckily, there’s the buttercream to counteract.
