Rose Cake with Chocolate Letters

This weekend, I made a chocolate cake for a girl who loves pink.  It's kind of impossible to make pink chocolate frosting, at least it is if you're avoiding vats of chemicals.  I could make a chocolate cake and put pink roses on it, but then the roses wouldn't be made from chocolate frosting, and I don't really like it when there are two flavors of frosting on a cake.  My solution?  Pink chocolate letters!  I melted white chocolate and added some red chocolate coloring (which actually makes pink).  I piped the letters onto wax paper, let them chill in the fridge, and then carefully placed them on the frosted cake.

Isn't it beautiful?  It's so girly and fun, just like Claire!

And this rose design looks so complicated and stunningly beautiful, but is the easiest way to frost a cake!

Bonus: It also tastes delicious. :)

Love and Chocolate,
Leah Joy
