Masquerade Cake

I made this cake a while ago- August last year in fact- for a friend's birthday. She was having a masquerade party and I offered to make the cake and here is what I came up with. It is a white chocolate mudcake with white chocolate ganache on the bottom layer and purple buttercream for the mask. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out and the birthday girl like it too!

I made two 20cm square cakes and cut one of the cakes into the shape of a mask. I covered the bottom layer with white chocolate ganache. Yummy!

Then I covered the mask with the buttercream. I decorated the cake with purple sugar sprinkles, cachous and apricot balls. I also tied a ribbon around it and stuck a fake branch with flowers on it into the mask.

Not too bad for my first decorated cake :)

Lots of love,
Little Miss Cupcake
