Rose Wedding Cake

I thought I'd give faux pastries a try. Threw in a couple of roses and voilà, my 2nd attempt! You really don't want to see the 1st attempt! LOL


  1. Connie,
    Thank you soooo much for the sweet comments on my blog. And i love the ribbon rose idea for the tacks, I will try it. I just didn't want plain ugly white or gold tacks up there, so out came the pink paint : ) Your cake turned out beautiful!!! And I looked through your home pictures, soooo cute. Can't wait to read through all your blog, I will be back : ) Oh by the way, what is the tissue trick you mention for pictures?

  2. Oh so sweet! I wish it were real. Served with a cold glass of milk.

    Hey, is it chocolate or vanilla inside?

  3. Love your pink cake! Have a blessed and wonderful Monday!

  4. Hi Connie... Looking good! I am very impressed with your conviction to paint roses and I think you're doing an excellent job! My congratulations!

    Cheering you on...

  5. Morning girl...oh I love how you have the roses cascading down like that..You are just getting better and your determination...I'd be afraid to even begin! Have a great day sweetie!
