Summer Sunflowers

I have another treat for you chocoholics!  This time we are celebrating an anniversary.  Imagine - cream filled cupcakes in cake form.  This order was for a chocolate cake with a whipped cream filling (I use chantilly cream, heavy on the powdered sugar), and chocolate buttercream.  The decorations are hand piped royal icing transfers with mini-chocolate chip centers.  The vines are piped using vanilla buttercream that has been colored green.

Add  Sunflower Chocolate Cake with Cream Filling
 Here is a closeup of the sunflower:

 I had leftover icing and cream, so I made some cupcakes and carried the sunflower theme over to these little dessert cups.  Here's the stacking order...unwrapped cupcake, chantilly cream, unwrapped cupcake, vanilla buttercream icing on the outer edge, and chocolate buttercream in the center, topped with mini chocolate chips.

Let me know what you think!  And Happy Anniversary Debbie & Mike!  Wishing you many more happy years together!
