Be my valentine

baking, cake, cakes

A love hearts cake. Two layer sponge – see my rose cupcake recipe, sandwiched with SMBC and crumb coat. Cover with fondant and finishing touches with pink modelling chocolate,

Swiss meringue buttercream (SMBC) is my stable and staple! go-to base if I am not using marzipan under fondant icing. Don't be intimidated by reading the process- you do however need a stand mixer.

Finally pink modelling chocolate – see earlier post on modelling chocolate stripes to see how versatile and easy candy melts are.

As for the motto- appropriate for a valentine's day dinner party with old friends

I love to hear your thought and answer any queries. Thanks for visiting-spread the cake love!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
