I think rose petals are so beautiful. Maybe it’s old fashioned of me, but they’re so ruffly, and dainty. They smell good and even feel good, with their soft, matte-velvet texture.
I think this cake is just so pretty, don’t you? It mimics that beautiful yellow-meets-blush look that you can only find on roses. At first, I thought the embellishment around that bottom tier was curls of white chocolate, but then I realized that they were rose petals, strung together in a garland. The same blush-yellow roses form the cake’s topper. And as if its prettiness isn’t enough, the butter cake is filled with lemon curd and frosted with white chocolate buttercream. That’s an “all is right with the world, there’s no way I’ll ever go completely Paleo diet” combination. In fact, I’m thinking I need this, oh, now.
(And isn’t that little loopy swirl trim adorable?)
