Last year I surprised my best friend, May, with a make up themed cake. This year I wanted to surprise her with something new. I searched cake tutorials on YouTube and found this design. It had a cool style (just like May!) that I really loved. For the cake I made alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla sponge. I made a chocolate ganache for the filling and an Italian Meringue for the frosting. May is married to a great guy from Italy so this worked out perfect!! I made raspberry and chocolate macarons to decorate the cake. I bought the raffaellos. This is a special cake for a very special friend! I hope you love the cake May! Life wouldn’t be the same without you, Happy Birthday!!!
