This is a cake I recently made for my friend, Meagan, who is having a baby. Another friend, Amy, showed me how to make roses and since then I've liked to add them to most cakes I make. As I've found, roses cover a host of mistakes in the frosting.
I saw the idea to do a half moon shape on the top with roses on some website after doing a "google" search for ideas on cake decorating.
This cake is by no means perfect, but it's come a long way since I started six and a half years ago with my son's birthday cake. It was supposed to be a rocket, but at least one person asked if it was a fish.
