Banana Chocolate Birthday Cake with Daffodils

I made this cake for my younger sister's 25th birthday. She loves banana cake, so I made a banana cake with a fudge icing. My sister's favorite flower is a daffodil. So I tried to make them for the top of the cake. It was the first time making this flower out of gum paste.

Unfortunately you can't enjoy the best part of this cake online--the taste! Man, this was so good. It was just an amazingly moist banana cake with this decadent chocolate fudge frosting. It was one of those cakes where everyone asked for a glass of milk when they were done!

1) The fudge frosting sets quickly. I had to use warm water on the spatula to spread the frosting on the cake.
2) Practice, Practice, Practice. That is the only way to get beautiful, life-like flowers.
