I seriously love making these flowers and I love how they look. So, if I'm forced to cover the Perfect Chocolate Cake with fondant it's going to be pretty and blinged out. As much as it pains me to cover the chocolate icing in fondant, fondant sticks to it remarkably well.
My coworker asked me to put Happy Birthday Nessy on the cake and we had a long conversation over choosing to spell a name with a Y versus IE. Even when I was writing out Happy Birthday I was thinking to myself, "every word ends in Y". Easy enough. Ha! Right up until I delivered the cake I hadn't realised that I spelled it incorrectly. The bonus of putting the caption on the cake board versus the cake is that you can rip it off! Though she did say her sister would probably prefer my spelling of her nick name.
