Zoe & Co. Rosette Cake

Hi Everyone

I loved being able to make this special Zoe & Co. Rosette Cake for a cake smashing fun on Wednesday.

Mum Claire's only instruction that it be bright, colourful and healthy. With our best effort to make sure all ingredients are organic; I found this Yogurt Loaf Cake recipe online to try (as our beloved Zoe loves yogurt) and only mixed with pink, blue, purple, yellow and green colourings to the batter.

However, this is the worse recipe I came across of the whole time I have been baking. The texture is actually like the play dough by the time we smashed it. It's a disappointment from the whole experience.

In term of the frosting, I have been dying to try out the "rose" buttercream technique and think I did all right the very first time. We have applied the same principle and cautiously choosing what are the best for our children to eat, the whole cake is covered with Cream Cheese Swiss Meringue Buttercream.

I have to keep the cake back in the fridge actually every minute even in the 20C air conditioned room to avoid the cake melting away. It's really difficult to work with. I am thinking to cut all cream cheese frostings for good especially in summer time. However, we did hit the result of getting messy from it at the end...

THe cake as topped with a custom Zoe gum paste doll completed with the famous pearl necklace and a large version of the "Darling" medallion and a Number 1.

What a great time we had. Both mums ended up changing our clothes too.

If you have any great healthy recipe that is easy to work with for our precious children and for this particular occasion in the future, please feel free to share with us.

Thank you for stopping by.
Happy baking
