This cake came to us by way of a referral from a friend. Najla and Bruce who were recently engaged were having the two families together to celebrate. Najla called and asked if we could make a small cake for them.

She asked for a red velvet cake, she wanted to incorporate the colour red and she also likes roses. She had no idea of what design she wanted and asked us to surprise her.  We started by making a 9" double layer red velvet heart with cream cheese filling.

The roses were made with gum paste as was the small banner. The hearts, leaves and love birds were all made from fondant.

The border was also made with fondant and little silver dragee were added for a little sparkle and the banner was propped up by 2 gum paste hearts.

Congratulations on your engagement
Najla & Bruce!
