Gorgeous Roses

This cake was done for an Anniversary Party. Bottom layer was lemon cake with fruit filling. The top layer was chocolate cake with chocolate ganache, both covered with vanilla buttercream and white fondant. All Roses and rose petals are made out of fondant.

*Now as much as this cake is beautiful, it was kind of a pain. My house was very humid the day i was doing the fondant and it was not co-operating properly. It was cracking everywhere, it had bubbles everwhere. I was so disappointed i did not want to deliver this cake. I made it look as decent as possible but in the end i was not happy with it. I can say though that my Roses turned out beautifully!*
