Inspiration for this cake came from Real Simple Weddings. The cake turned out beautiful (I thought). The fondant draped over the cake perfectly, the ribbon cooperated, and the flower, which was made of gumpaste, turned out awesome. However, the cake itself... chocolate with buttercream filling... was way dry. I checked out my trusty cake book and found that if you brush your cake with a simple syrup before freezing it, the moisture stays in the cake much better! I tried this technique on the Harry Potter cake and it worked great! It can really add a lot of sweetness to the cake though, so you have to balance the syrup with the sugar content of the cake so that it's not too overbearing. Happy baking!
