Grandma's Birthday Cake!

For my Grandma's 89th Birthday, I made her a stacked "Pansy" cake. My Grandma has always loved Pansies and I of course learned how to make them in my Wilton classes...

The top layer was a chocolate cake and the bottom was yellow. Both cakes were filled w/ a chocolate whipped cream filling (1 3/4 cup heavy cream or whipping cream, 5 T powdered sugar, 3 T unsweetened cocoa.... just whip it up! really tasty!)

I frosted the cakes with Bakerella's Easy Buttercream.

I also made some chocolate cupcakes with the leftover cake batter... and frosted/decorated them with the buttercream and some leftover Apple Blossoms and Violets.

I used Juniper Green with tip #352 for the leaves... I used shell borders (a smaller one on the 6 inch cake and a larger one on the 8" cake...) And no, I can't write that well! I used one of Wilton's message press sets! :-)
