I made this for a colleague's Mum's 50th birthday. Two tiers of yummy chocolate sponge covered in chocolate flavour rolled fondant and white chocolate circles. The party venue was to be dressed in gold and brown decorations so I wanted the cake to match. I spent what felt like eons trying to find gold food colouring for the buttercream, you can pretty much get any colour under the sun so I don't know why I had such difficulty. In the end I used Sugarflairs 'Old Gold' which has more of a bronzey hue when you first look at it, after mixing with the buttercream it reminded me more of a golden autumnal leaf. I piped around the joins and added some gold glitter for a bit of bling. It was my first attempt at a tiered cake and I got so carried away I forgot to take a pic before I boxed it up!
I also made 50 mini cupcakes -half chocolate and half vanilla. Again I used gold buttercream and decorated with gold sprinkles and gold glitter.
