This Mushroom cake was for my daughter’s first birthday – a real labor of love! It’s a chocolate cake (with a box of dark chocolate Lindt balls mixed in for extra flavor!) and the top layer has white chocolate cream and raspberry filling.
I used marshmallow fondant, which was a breeze to make and color. I bought the flowers and butterflies – no time to make – but made all the other decorations. The top cake was a bit of a nightmare to cover in fondant because I should have put a plain layer on first to hold everything in place before I put on the red layer, but the spots and butterflies hide a multitude of flaws.
Everyone loved it!
