Honey Chocolate Cake Take 2


Today is my parent's wedding anniversary! I told my mum about my honey chocolate cake and she decided to make it for their wedding anniversary. She made a garden theme of the cake complete with edible flowers and fence (sponge fingers).  The purple ribbon is from the bouquet of flowers she received from us (the children). Isn't she amazing? Now why didn't I think of this?



Happy Anniversary Mum & Dad, with lots of love from me :)

    1. Thanks! These bees are made from yellow marzipan. I used yellow ready to roll icing for mine.

  9. Ah how sweet, hope they had a lovely anniversary! you just reminded me it's my parents wedding anniversary next week! I absolutely love the addition of sponge fingers around the edge of this cake...I used to love it when my mom made trifle growing up (not cause I'm a fan of trifle) but because I would get to eat the leftover trifle sponges straight out the box - yum!

  11. How lovely, your mum is wonderful. I'd never have thought of doing anything like that either and yet gardening is such a big thing for us. It looks gorgeous.
