Tea and Fondant

I've been taking a cake decorating class through Adult Education. My most recent creation is featured here and we'll share a slice along with a cup of orange spice tea.

I baked a chocolate cake, then iced it with white buttercream (so that the fondant would adhere to it), and covered it in fondant. Next, I used pink buttercream to decorate it.

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet...these don't have much smell, but buttercream roses taste really good!

 This tea cup originally held a bouquet. It was one of my grandmother's, from her tea cup collection.

I'm using my pink floral teapot today.

I had a lot of fun decorating this cake. I hope you enjoyed seeing it and sharing a cup of tea with me today.
