40th Anniversary Chocolate Cake

40th Anniversary Chocolate Cake

This Anniversary Cake was my third cake, made for my in-laws 40th wedding anniversary.

This cake took about 6 hours total. I probably could have done it quicker, but I'm an inexperienced decorator and a perfectionist to boot :)

It's Chocolate and yellow cake with chocolate buttercream frosting and raspberry fruit filling. Double layer 8 inch and 6 inch round cakes. All from scratch.

The decorations were simple: red ribbon, chocolate curls (made with a potato peeler and hershey chocolate bar), and red spray roses cascading down.

At the conclusion of the party, there was not even a crumb left of this cake. I have to admit, it was delicious!

From the editor:

Hi Cheryl,

What a beautiful, simple design. It just goes to show, you don't need a boat load of fancy schmancy techniques and 20 years of decorating experience to produce a fabulous cake.

Thanks so much for sharing the instructions with us.

Hi Cheryl,

Your cake is beautiful by the way. I'm new to this site and was breezing through Michelle's recipes which all sound delicious, but i just wanted to know, when u said you made the choc and yellow cakes from scratch were they using Michelle's recipes? Just curious.
