I decided to go with a lemon cake and pistachio custard filling. The combination of flavors turned out even more delicious than I expected. Here is a look at the decorating process:
After filling the cake, I whipped up some heavy cream and covered the entire cake.
I then took a sheet of Saran Wrap and brushed 2 different hues of pink food coloring onto it. I scooped out about a cup of whipping cream and placed it on top, folded the Saran Wrap over it and created a “whip sausage”. Then, “snipped the tip” and placed the whole thing inside a pastry bag.
I took a piece of wax paper and piped out a rose which I then stuck in the freezer to set.
Once the rose was hardened, I pulled it off the wax paper and placed it on top of the cake. I piped on a few dots to finish off the cake and I’m pretty happy with the outcome.
