They are made using one of my favourite sponge cake receipes:
6oz Self Raising flour
6oz Caster Sugar
1 Teaspoon baking powder.
1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
I creamed together the butter, vanilla and sugar, add eggs one by one and beat and then add the sifted flour and mix. I then added the baking powder and beat in. I bake for about 20 minutes at 175.
The buttercream topping is 6oz butter, 12oz icing sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 3 teaspoons of cold water.

To create the rose effect i piped using the 1B nozzle, starting in the middle and working anti-clockwise. I used green sugarpaste to create the litte leaves and to finish i added silver shimmer spray to give a sparkly effect.
