13. Highlights

Here we have carefully selected the key parts from the entire tutorial and condensed it into an 10 min long video. More than enough to get you started without taking too much time.

Paul introduces us to his drop dead gorgeous Satin Chocolate Rose cake - a tasty design that's almost too good to eat, complete with edible roses.
This cake boasts pure wow factor, and is the perfect show-stopping celebration cake for a wedding or special occasion. To complement the design you could use a tree trunk as the stand and add some real flowers to the base.
One of the best things about this design, is its flexibility. You could switch up the colours by colouring the ganache or changing the type of flower or adding fruit.
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to work and texture with ganache, make edible roses with modelling chocolate, work with lustres and so much more! This cake is perfect for an intermediate cake designer or a beginner looking for a new challenge, and it's a fabulous design to add to your collection.

We'd love to see your take on the Satin Chocolate Rose Cake - so make sure you share your snaps with us on our Facebook page.
