Happy 50th!

This cake was created for a co-worker's 50th birthday!  It is a 12" round cake on the bottom.  Four layers of white cake, two layers of strawberry jam filling and one layer of vanilla buttercream filling.  The top tier is an 8" round cake.  Four layers of strawberry cake with three layers of vanilla buttercream filling.  The entire cake was frosted with vanilla buttercream frosting. 

It is difficult to get a true black frosting without using A LOT of black coloring, even if you start with chocolate frosting, and then it just doesn't taste very good.  I know someone always wants to eat the buttercream roses so my plan was to make white roses and spray them with a black color mist.  That didn't work out so good.  The color came out purple and did NOT look appetizing at all.  So a late night trip to Wal-Mart was is order.  I purchased 3 black fabric roses for the top of the cake.  I decided to use black ribbon as a border on the bottom of each cake.

The topper was purchased at a party store. 

Happy 50th Birthday Svetlana!

I think without the topper the design would be pretty for a black and white theme wedding, don't you?
