Classy Junior Mint Cake

This cake is up for auction Sunday, October 31 at the Senior Citizen's Center in Alamosa, CO.  The festivities of the Sunshine Christian School Fall Festival Taco Dinner and Pie Auction begin at 4:30 pm.  All proceeds go to the school.

It's a chocolate fudge cake with buttercream mint frosting in the center.  I used Junior Mint candies pressed into the cake when it came out of the oven so they would melt into the cake and flavor it a bit.  The flowers are gum paste and the brown things are Jumior Mint candies. The green covering is home made fondant.

  1. Oh, my! What a cake! I am totally impressed. Hope it brings in big bucks for the school. We are going down to Tucson to help Starr with her school's Fall Festival fund raiser on Sunday. Don't believe we will see anything quite so fancy down there! kj
