This particular cake is one of my favorites...I actually added a small amount of embroidery, which I really enjoy doing. It's very relaxing and adds a nice little detail. The ribbon rose gave me more problems that it should have, but I finally got it to look the way I wanted it to.
Just one more of these little cakes to go now...an October birthday, then all my birthday lunch friends will be covered. One of these days I'll have to make one for myself!
