Pearl Roses Birthday Cake
This cake was a recipe I've been wanting to try for some time now - Sylvia Weinstock's Angel Food Cake with Coconut, Blood Orange and Vanilla-Lime Buttercreams. I found the recipe on Oprah's website for the 10th anniversary of the O Magazine and should you wish to try it, the recipe can b be found at http://www.oprah.com/food/Sylvia-Weinstocks-Angel-Food-Cake-with-Lime-Coconut-and-Blood-Orange-Buttercreams.
The angel food recipe itself was certainly unusual as it contained butter and whole milk. I will note that the cake, while delicious, did not taste like angel food cake and had a much denser consistency.
Of the three buttercreams, the blood orange was by far my favorite! They were all good though and I did find that the flavors combined quite nicely.
The cake was covered in a blood orange-flavored fondant and then was topped with six pearlized gumpaste roses and a variety of sizes of gumpaste leaves.
A series of vanilla-lime buttercream pearls was piped around the base of the cake. The cake board was covered in white fondant and pearlized gumpaste lettering completed this birthday cake.
