April surprised me yesterday with this astonishing birthday cake:
Isn't this cake gorgeous? I love the funky lettering, and of course the skates trailing flames! Almost too pretty to eat... almost.
A cake this pretty deserves a spokesmodel that doesn't look like a huge dork. But no such luck.
I was amazed to find that the skates were actually thin pieces of solid white chocolate.
Chocolate cake layers with chocolate mousse in between, with a thick layer of rich buttercream frosting. As delicious as it was, one piece was plenty.
