Please scroll down for the original post… this first picture is a new one of my most recent (almost identical) cake!
My cousin Beau sent me a message a few weeks ago asking if I could do a birthday cake for his sweet wife. Since I just adore Beau and his wife, I said, “Of course!!”. Rosemary (not to be confused with me, Rose Marie) is a huge fan of (and graduate of) Mississippi State University, so he wanted a cake to reflect that!
Actually, people sometimes do confuse Rosemary and I. My maiden name is Rose Marie Hawley. Her married name is Rosemary Hawley. My Mama (Mrs. Hawley) was a teacher at Franklin High School for years and Rosemary is a teacher there now. Oh, and I graduated from there. Did you get all that?
Anyway, just this past week Rosemary got a call from a sweet lady trying to reach Mrs. Rose Hawley to order a 2 tiered birthday cake. Beau said she almost took the order…. ha!
Anyway… this cake was all chocolate cake covered and filled with vanilla buttercream. The MSU decorations are all made from homemade marshmallow fondant and I specifically ordered maroon gel coloring so that I could get this cake just right for a devoted MSU fan (otherwise, I would’ve had no idea what colors to mix and match to get maroon)! Happy Birthday Rosemary!!
Any questions about this cake? Please leave them in the comments and I’m happy to answer & help!
