Spice Cake and Roses
My grandmother and her husband came into town this weekend, and my mom had us over for dinner so I offered to make a quick cake. I had lots of leftover icing from class this week and my brother's birthday cake earlier in the week. I went with a spice cake from Rose's Heavenly Cakes because I'd made it before and knew it was pretty simple. I decided I wanted to practice doing roses since I hadn't done them in a while. I managed to throw the cake together including decorations in two hours! The cake didn't cool fully, but since we were cutting into it soon anyway it wasn't a big deal. It ended up being very moist. My husband said it was one of his favorites, and my mom requested I make it with a cream cheese frosting for my step-dad's 50th birthday.
