Prepare the rose one day in advance. To create the roses, roll out some brown fondant and cut out the flowers with the 5-petal cutter. You will need 2 flowers for each rose. Turn a small ball of fondant into a drop shape between your fingers and glue a flower shape with some edible glue around it. Add the second layer around it. Let the roses dry in standing position.
Knead some brown fondant until smooth again and use the Katy Sue molds to make a plaque, roses and enough ruffles to go around your cake. Place this under a piece of cling film to prevent it from drying out. Roll out a another piece of fondant very thinly. Squeeze out rose petals with the plunger to create the letters or numbers of your choice with the tappits. Again, leave it under a piece of cling film.
Preheat the oven to 180°C (convection oven 160°C).
Prepare 150 grams of FunCakes Mix for Sponge Cake as indicated on the package. Grease the baking pan with Bake Release Spray and fill with the sponge cake batter. Bake for 30-35 minutes and then release it on a cooling grid to cool down.
Prepare 125 grams of FunCakes Mix for Buttercream as indicated on the package and add flavour paste to taste. Cut the sponge cake twice using a cake leveller and fill te layers with buttercream. Apply a thin layer of buttercream on the cake to fill holes and get rid of any bumps and put it in the frigde for a while. Apply antoher layer of buttercream using a side scraper to straighten the edges but save a little buttercream for on top of the cake.
Sprinkle your work surface with Magic Roll-Out Powder and knead the remaining fondant smoothly. Roll this out to a thickness of 2-3 mm and cover the cake. Smoothen the edges using a smoother.
Glue the ruffles along the edges of the cake with some edible glue. Finish the plaque with the name or numbers of your choice and glue it to the cake. Put a little bit of buttercream on top of the cake and arrange the roses and leaves around it.
Once everything is attached to the cake, spray it completely copper with the metallic spray. Let it air dry for 10 minutes.
