Valentine's Day - 2/10

What says Valentine's Day more than chocolate and roses?  CAKE with chocolate and roses!!  This was another opportunity for me to try new things--chocolate fondant and fondant roses.  The chocolate fondant recipe I used didn't work as well as regular marshmallow fondant (the basic white fondant that I use) as far as elastictisity, but still tasted good;)  I will have to find another recipe. The roses however, turned out really well, I was quite impressed as they were not very difficult to do.  The hearts were fondant and the piping was freehanded w/ buttercream.  This was also a chocolate cake filled with chocolate buttercream--YUM!!
