Vanilla Cake with Raspberry Mascarpone Butter Cream

This cake is my learning cake decorating project. Pretty happy with the result, this is my first time making rose, I think using butter cream frosting helped a lot. With my previous attempts at cake decorating, the frosting, heavy cream frosting, was too soft it could not form the shape I wanted…. and it melts in no time in summer. On this one I used butter as the main ingredient, as the twist I added mascarpone cheese which I think would go well with raspberry, and It did actually, perfect pairing.

 

My mom is very good at making butter cream rose, so good that I remember almost all of our birthday cakes back then were decorated with roses 🙂 … every birthday, whenever it’s mom’s homemade cake.

    Lovely cake! My kind of cake…elegant in a homey way…cake and frosting I can eat…unlike fondant….like you, I still pipe roses on my cakes..it gives the cake a personal touch. I don’t know, I don’t like fondant cakes..they look too perfect.
