This is a chocolate cake with caramel filling and butter cream dream icing. I loved the texture of the icing but it does NOT crust very well, so Viva method was out:( Flowers are RI, rest buttercream. I received a Lot of help from various CCers-from baking to decorating. Thank you all! I guess since I am still new to decorating, I get carried away with decorating the cake and I need to still get to the point where you know when to stop!!!!
