word travels extremely fast around my office
like, exceptionally fast.
(i wish i could tell you the recipe, but i made it up as i went and forgot to write it down)
i flavored some of the frosting with strawberry extract and used that to fill the hole.
also layered in there were some sliced strawberries, chopped dark chocolate, and plain frosting.
next up, i dirty iced the outside of the cake (this eliminates crumbs in the final layer of icing)
and set it in the freezer for a little while.
after letting the cake chill and set,
i whipped up some fresh frosting (no pun intended)
and added my marzipan roses and leaves
then came the writing,
the most nerve-wracking part.
after holding my breath the entire time,
it turned out alright.
i added some halved strawberries around the sides and it was complete.
