This cake is pretty simple in appearance... but would I ever like to have had a slice of it?! This was a sour cream chocolate cake with Irish Cream mousseline buttercream. Irish Cream buttercream has been on the "to try" list for awhile for me and from the little taste I got (to make sure it was adequate to give to someone else), it certainly was! Count on it that this flavor pairing will be happening again sometime when I'm going to get
some of the cake! :-)
The Montréal logo was done with fondant as was the lettering. The borders are buttercream (blue) and piping gel (red). This cake was done for a last minute surprise birthday party that I think was a much a surprise for the guests as it was for the birthday boy! Although it is simple, I was happy with the finished product and I hope the people at the party liked Irish Cream buttercream as much as I did!
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
