Soon it is Midsummer’s Eve here in Denmark. We are going to celebrate by watching bonfires on the beach. But first, we are going to enjoy this delicious flower cake.
The flower cake is a chocolate cake that I have split and filled with a mousse filling. The fillings consist of strawberry mousse and chocolate ganache.
I have frosted the top and the sides of the cake with chocolate ganache before I covered the cake with fondant. I rolled out the fondant and added a pattern to the fondant cover with a special rolling pin.
I have also made a couple of fondant gerbera daisies that I attached to the cake with edible glue.
In addition, I made a little bouquets of wired hydrangeas with fondant. I colored the flowers with pink, purple and light green color dust.
When I insert wired flowers in my cakes, I normally place the wires in a straw first and then I insert the straw in the cake. I never insert the wires directly in the cake.
Here I have inserted the flowers using the straw:
I have decorated the edge of the cakes with a pink silk ribbon which is attached with edible glue. This is a quick and easy way to decorate the edge.
