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.


  1. That is FABulOUS. WOW.

    1. Thanks, it was so fun to make. I'll make you one someday.

  3. It looks beautiful! I've always wanted to work with fondant but am too chicken to just go for it.

    1. Thanks Zeemaid :), it was pretty simple because I just made the decorations out of fondant. Do you have a stand mixer? If you do, go for it! If you don't have one. It's too much work. :P


I love comments. Thanks for taking the time. Cheers!
