Rose Cake

Cake mixes have been on sale at every grocery store I have walked into for the last month.  While I make cakes from scratch a lot, I am not opposed to using cake mixes.  They are quick and easy and taste great.  They are coming out with more flavor choices as well.  Taylor was with me and the kid has been on a banana kick lately, so he picked banana cake. 

I found a picture of this cake on flicker.  I fell in love with it.  I have made cupcake with roses on them before, but never a cake. 

This cake is 2 layers of moist banana cake frosted with a pale yellow rum buttercream.  Soooo good. 

I think I did a good job on my first try at a rose cake.  Next time I want to make the roses pale pink with a dark devils food cake !!
