I made this cake for my best friends niece. She wanted pink and red bougainvillea on the cake. I had never used these flowers on a cake before so I tested them out first. They do not do well as cut flowers so I had to cut and place the bougainvillea on the cake just one hour before the wedding started.
The flavor of the cake was carrot cake with cream cheese filling. I iced the cake with vanilla buttercream and did a simple rustic design on the cake.
