This is my first fully fondant decorated cake which I made specially for my best buddy. I spend around 5 hours to bake / fill & make the cake decors....Mannn this is tiringggg...I followed Gina's Nutella Cake recipe and made some chocolate+hazelnut paste filling.

Gina, the cake looks very good. Havent have a slice yet. But sadly, when I was slicing the cake into half, the top half broke to pieces. So yikessss, have to somehow use it though...Lucky the fondant cover everything...Thats why can see the cake so uneven. Then again, thanks for posting the recipe !! Cant wait to try it tomorrow cheers



Regards...May

so pretty ! your roses looks very realistic too.

the white flower ...(can't remember what it is called). try making the yellow bud shorter...then it more natural.

the smaller rose buds, you should distribute it around all the bigger roses.
