Here's BabyGirl's cake:
I thought about icing the sides of the cake, but decided against it. The brown/chocolate cake and pink frosting made such a striking color palette that I didn't want to cover up the cake.
The frosting is, of course, all buttercream. It's so good, I hardly ever bother with anything else.
Thanks to i am baker for posting the tutorial for making the roses. It was a cinch!
Happy first birthday to my BabyGirl!
