I was inspired by this cake
available through Williams Sonoma.
I wanted to make a really special cake for my Mom's birthday, and her only requests were that the cake should be chocolate and the decorations should be pink and purple. I wanted to make a bigger, better version of the flower pot cake! Here is how I did it, and how you can do it, too.
3 6-inch Chocolate Cake Layers (Recipe included, or use a cake mix)
Chocolate Frosting (Recipe included, or use 2 cans store-bought)
Store-bought Fondant ~2 lbs
Oreo or chocolate cookie crumbs
Food Colouring in red/pink, violet, green and terracotta (Or, red, yellow and brown to create Terracotta)
Royal Icing Flower Centers or Small Yellow Candies
So let's get started!
