Simple Blue Fondant Cake with Gum Paste Roses

Simple Blue Birthday Cake
White Roses
Since my husband went south for the ordination of a good friend, we were able to have the Netcaster Team come to our church for the week.  Evangelist Jonathan Barber is preaching for our services and has been a tremendous blessing.  The team has jumped into a lot of places (Children's Church, music, outreach, office work, etc) and we are so grateful for their help! 

Jonathan's wife Rebecca's birthday was this Saturday, October 15.  Joy wanted to make her a birthday cake, so she asked Jon what her favorite flowers were, her favorite color, and her favorite cake and frosting.  We were happy she likes roses, because Joy is great at making roses!  The roses you see here are gum paste roses with leaves also made of a light green gum paste.  

The cakes are triple chocolate fudge (fudge cake, chocolate pudding, and mini chocolate chips) and the frosting is a fudge frosting recipe I found on CakeCentral.com.  It is a cooked frosting, similar to a fudge recipe, that worked GREAT!  Blue fondant covers the chocolate cake and white lace was added to give it more of an elegant look.  Although the whites did not match exactly (like I wanted them to) we were happy with the finished product of the cake! 

We look forward to the Netcasters Team coming back in May!!
