A dozen roses 40th birthday

It's been a busy week for cakes.  A friend of Mel's ordered a cake for his wife's 40th birthday. He wanted a small cake for her to celebrate with a few of her friends.  The only thing he requested is that it have a few red roses on it.  Mel & I decided that a 40th birthday deserves at least a dozen red roses.  So we decided to make roses presented in a classic white box.  The cake is 8" square cake cut to an oblong shape to resemble a box. Alternate layers of vanilla and choc cake with french vanilla mousse and fresh strawberries for the filling. The box is lined with white fondant sheets to resemble tissue paper.  The roses are made from white gum paste and dusted with red velvet edible dust. The leaves and the small purple forget me knots are made from fondant where the tag is made from gum paste.

Happy Birthday Linda!
We hope you had a wonderful birthday and you enjoyed your cake.
