One of my passions is cake design, I love nice cakes, I think they make everybody happier and the whole environment much nicer. Also you do not have to decorate the room much when you have a really nice cake that would work as a centerpiece.
So, every time I can (as it takes soooooo long) I make a new cake, and I challenge myself with ambitious structural challenges and original decorations.
Lately for example I made this cake for my own birthday (I know that the birthday girl should not do the cake for herself, but you know I consider that a present to myself and a good occasion to have a project).

First things first, I have made the flowers a week in advance, so they had the time to dry. Here a step by step video that shows you the ingredients and how to do it:
And HERE the recipe for the Chocolate Sponge I have made:
