Allegro Book Club

A couple of months ago I was asked to make a cake for a book club. After tossing around several ideas we finally settled on an open book with some sugar flower roses. I spent a lot of time looking at photos of open book cakes and tried to decide what I liked about them and what I did not. I tried to take everything I learned and incorporate it into this cake. I am really happy with how everything turned out. I hope the book club enjoys it!

Making these roses gave me a chance to play with my new veiner.  If you look really closely at the pedals on the flowers you can see the effect.

At first I was a bit afraid of putting a real rose in a photo with my sugar roses, but I am actually really happy that there is not much of a difference!

On a slightly unrelated note, My blog is creeping up on it's 1000th visitor, so if that is you, let me know!
