Tess’s Baptism Cake

It’s been a long, lonely Saturday, but I did use my time productively.  Here’s the baptism cake I made to celebrate little Tess’s entry into the Church.  Another collection of experimental recipes – this time the roses are modeling chocolate, made with candy melts.  The new fondant recipe needs a bit of tweaking before it’s right, but I was able to work with it.  The cake itself is Date Spice cake with vanilla buttercream.  The only thing I didn’t make this time was the gumpaste for the filler flowers.

Here’s a detail of my roses.  Modeling chocolate roses are so much fun to make!
