Pink Petal Cake

Hello again! Wow, it has been a while since I have posted! My summer has been super busy with spring and summer classes at school, work, and an amazing Europe trip I took with my cousin! We went for two weeks and we visited the cities Vienna, Prague and Budapest. All three cities were incredible but Prague was by far my favorite; it was absolutely stunning and it felt like I was in a fairytale!

As the summer is coming to an end and I have about a week left before I begin my last semester of university, I felt like making a cake! So I baked a chocolate layer cake, with vanilla buttercream-raspberry filling and frosted it with pink and white vanilla buttercream!

After crumb coating the cake with a thin layer of frosting, I decided to practice the flower petal decorating technique! It is one of the prettiest cake decorating techniques I have seen! I did this by piping a line of 3 dots, then using the back of a small teaspoon I gently dragged the buttercream to the right until the entire side of the cake was covered.

Then I decorated the top by dragging the piped vanilla buttercream dots into the center. And I topped it off with a delicious raspberry!

I ended up bringing the cake over to my boyfriend`s friends house for dessert and it was a hit!

Father’s Day- ‘Next Level’ Turtles Chocolate Ganache Cake

Happy Father’s Day to all dads today, but especially to my dad! He does so much for my brother and I and we do not do enough to show our appreciation for him! So today we cooked him yummy breakfast burritos, we are going to the driving range… And I baked him this cake!

My dad’s favorite chocolate is Turtles, he likes them so much he hides the box from us, haha, so I just knew I had to incorporate them in a cake for him. I baked a two layer moist chocolate cake with vanilla Turtles buttercream and caramel filling and topped with vanilla buttercream, rich chocolate ganache, and of course more crumbled Turtles and a touch of whipped cream.

I also had a bit of batter left so I made six cupcakes- my brother tasted one and has dubbed them the ‘next level’ cupcake, hence the title of my post. They are his new fave! : )
