A pretty little "present" cake ordered by a husband, for his wife who likes chocolate and the color lavender. I hope she likes it, and I hope it gets where it's going okay. We've had 89 zillion inches of rain today (okay- I exaggerate) and for a while I thought I might have to launch it off in a canoe.
For those of you who like to hear all the details (i.e., lick the screen), it's a two-layer chocolate fudge cake, iced in chocolate buttercream, with chocolate cornelli-lace decorating the gift box. The lavender ribbons-and-roses and the green leaves are all fondant, painted with a bit of silver luster-dust for a pretty sheen.
