40th Anniversary Cake

So, our first cake this summer was a 40th anniversary cake for friends of ours, Blair and Linda. Happy Anniversary, you two! We love you! 🙂

Since it was their Ruby anniversary, we went with four tiers(for forty years) and decorated with white and red. We had this beautiful, wide damask ribbon in a ruby shade, so we opted to cover our tallest tier with that and incorporated a large flower accented by mini blossoms to keep with a romantic theme.

The bottom square tier was our Decadent Chocolate, filled with Chocolate Ganache (my wedding cake…yum!) and frosted with Almond Buttercream. So delicious! The next tier was Almond Pound Cake with Almond Buttercream, and the top two tiers were Decadent Chocolate with Vanilla Bean Buttercream. All in all, an extremely yummy cake!

  1. I like the idea of the different heights and shapes of the tiers. And the big red flower really was a nice touch! It sounds delicious, too.
