    strips of waxed paper under cake to protect
    platter from icing, Place top tier on slightly
    smaller round of foil-lined cardboard. Spread
    icing over top and side of each tier, reserving
    enough for piping. Coat side of each tier with
    hazelnuts (if using).
  • Insert plastic straw supports and stack tiers.
    Using pastry bag fitted with 1/4-inch (5 mm) star
    tip, pipe remaining icing around edges in shell
    pattern. Arrange chocolate roses and leaves over
    cake. Refrigerate for up to 2 days.

    waxed paper roll out to 1/16-inch (1 mm)
    thickness. Using 1- 1/2- or 2-inch (3.5 or 5 cm)
    round cutter, cut out circles for petals. Form
    trimmings into 1/2-inch (1 cm) balls shape into
    cones for centres of roses.
  • Using rolling pin, press outer edge of one half
    of each circle as thinly as possible. Wrap thick
    sides of several circles around cone, overlapping

Tips
  • You can bake the cake up to 1 month ahead, then
    carefully wrap and freeze. Up to 2 days ahead,
    decorate thawed cake with icing and refrigerate
    until just before serving. Make sure that the
    refrigerator will be able to accommodate the
    assembled cake.
  • To make decorating easier, place cake on a
    turntable.
  • If you don't want to make chocolate roses and
    leaves, they can also be purchased at some
    cake-decorating supply stores. Or, garnish cake
    with fresh flower.
