This is a cake I made for my Godmother's birthday. The design itself came from this picture
by the wonderful
longestdistance and whomever commissioned the picture. Though the reason for the cake is different (birthday and valentines) I feel the same feeling of care presides. My godmother babysat me till 4th grade since my mom had to work.
The bottom layer is a large brownie that I rolled out.
The chocolate mousse and ganache recipe can be found here
For the flowers I tried my hand at using fondant for the first time. The gold dots are golden pearl sprinkles and the pearls are white sixlets.
I've never made a chocolate mousse cake before (or chocolate mousse from scratch before) but I think
I did pretty well. I'm very happy with how it turned out.
The process of how it came along can be found here
Have a great day.
