Happy Anniversary

As the title implies I made this cake for a wedding anniversary. This is an almond cake spread with apricot jam and covered and decorated with fondant. The rose on top of the cake is one of the few fondant roses I've done so far. I still need to practice making roses :-)

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I definitely thing you should do some ground-cherry preserves, I bet you'd come up with a beautiful way to present them! Let me know when/if you find them and when/if you'd like the recipe I have for preserves!
