I made this pink birthday cake for Lynda’s mom for her 60th birthday about 2 months ago. It was unseasonably hot the weekend I made it and I used proper butter for once. What a nightmare! My butter cream kept melting and try as I might I just could not get the overall cake smooth. The butter cream kept bulging in bizarre places.
To my relief the cake survived the hour-long drive and was well received by her mom.
In the spirit of honesty I will admit that I did not make the flowers on the cake. I cheated and bought them at ‘Icing on the Cake‘ in Ruislip Manor.
