A Rose by any other Name

A simple sheet cake, yellow with buttercream frosting. I was asked to provide a cake for a church function, for a group of ladies. Roses seemed fitting for a ladylike occasion. Deep burgundy compliments a deep golden yellow with simple star drop flowers.

Here, a detail shot of the roses and star flowers. I used two sizes of roses, a full size rose for the center, and the outlying roses have one less row of petals.

The border is a simple shell border. To bring out the main golden yellow color, I piped the star flowers on the shells.
