Chocolate Box Cake

Here’s a few shots of Sweet Element’s latest cake that was raffled off at a charity event last weekend.  Since our focus is on both cake & chocolate, I thought it would be a nice idea to combine the two mediums in a “chocolate box” cake.  And while I appreciate the simple chocolate sheen of well tempered bon-bons, I thought painting the chocolates as jewels with a little bit of luster dust would add a bit of elegance to this cake.  As a final touch, three gumpaste roses were added as adornment.

This cake was red velvet filled & frosted with vanilla moussaline buttercream and covered in fondant.  The dark chocolate bon bons were a combination of peanut butter & peanut butter caramels.

Congrats to the winner!
