Pink Rose Cake is the cake I made for my sister’s 30th birthday. As you know, at home she is our cake design artist, while I’m not an ace at all. This year, since she she was achieving an important goal, I wanted to make something special but within my range. And I found this American cake with shades from pale to hot pink, decorated with many side by side roses of mascarpone cream. I was struck: it was perfect for Simona! I’ll be honest, I didn’t know if I’d be able to get the amazing result I’d seen in the pictures on the web… but I had to try: I owed her, for all the amazing cakes she’d made for Elisa. So my brother-in-law and I, after studying the perfect recipe (we used a Martha Stewart’s recipe), made the cake together. At the moment of decorating I got really anxious, but thanks to his encouragement I made it! And I couldn’t be more proud of my result. When my sister saw us arriving, singing happy birthday, with her birthday cake, she goggled in amazement, and started to scan it, asking how had I made it… This time we surprised her!
Well, my friends, I wish you a great start of the week, and if you want to make a cake for a special one, this is your recipe!
