Yeah. It's not that pretty. To be fair to myself, that red wrapping I used on the base is what throws off the color balance in the photo. But still. It's a rather ugly display.
It's chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, a 6" heart sitting on a 15" heart...decorated with rambling greenery and frightful flowers in "aster mauve" and light blue.
It was for my bosses's wife's birthday. I know, really. It's amazing I lasted another day.
I've got a few cakes like this - ones that I just cringed the whole time I was making them because I didn't really have any sort of theme or story to work with. I think I was just asked to do something chocolate. Maybe the heart shape too. I don't know.
Anyway. Let us close the door on this frightful chapter. Thank you.
