Sunflower Cake


I made a sunflower cake last week for a birthday.

I didn't take any pictures of the process, but it was a three layer chocolate cake with strawberry cream and strawberry jam layers, liberally sprinkled with rum simple syrup and covered in chocolate ganache. The petals were marshmallow fondant coloured with liquid food colouring.


 
It looks a little like a chrysanthemum that lost it's way.
