Woodland Rose Cake and King Arthur Flour Giveaway



Few weeks back  I was contacted by King Arthur Flour and I was invited to participate in a really sweet project that involves cake making. How could I resist? It's a cake!
I received  a package full of  cake making/decorating essentials (I've never used parchment rounds before, if you can believe it I still hand cut them, what a treat, they are great!).Though  I have to say, as a self taught cake baker I was really curious to see new  Cake Essentials DVD. I've never taken any classes and any new source of information is really valuable. This Dvd is done  beautifully, it explains different stages in the cake making process, from the chemistry of cake baking to a beautifully decorated wedding cake. Lady instructor in the video was great, very clear and to the point. I also learned a new trick how to defrost butter quickly without melting it in the microwave.

For my cake I decided to keep it simple yet beautiful enough for a special occasion. Something that anyone could make, and it wouldn't require a whole day to create.
I've always loved woodland inspired dessert tables and bark decorations. Roses and dark chocolate. Sounds pretty, right?  I ended up making  this pretty Woodland Rose Cake.

 
 
To make Woodland Rose Cake you need:
Ateco  8 Piece Decorating Set (includes 6 piping tips, piping bag (it was so easy to clean) and a coupler)
Cake - I used  8 inch sponge cake, you can also use my favorite  Velvet Vanilla Pound Cake
Frosting, I used whipped ganache, Swiss buttercream would work great
long serrated knife to torte the cake
wax paper
flower nail or a meat thermometer if you don't have  flower nail.
