This is one of my favorite to make though I have to carve the pillow look into the cake myself as the pillow pan has been discontinued

I made this cake twice, once with buttercream and once with all fondant. Both were for friends' anniversaries. Both times, it came out wonderful, and the couples really loved them! This is perfect for any romantic occasion, and because the spray of roses frames the cake, it's easy to write a personalized message if desired.

I made this cake for Valentine's Day this year, my family loved it, I did not make any changes except that I added real 100% organic vanila extract to the fondant paste beacuse I wantd to give it an old fashion tone color, more retro in time, it came our perfect and my family loved it, I will make it sometime again. Thank you
