Un Magnifique Gâteau!! (A Wonderful Cake!)

I made a cake for my family in Marshfield while I was visiting last week! This cake is a French vanilla cake mix and is filled with raspberry jam. It was my first time trying to make the frosting look smooth! It's actually quite simple, just take a paper towel without a design on it (like the Viva brand) and use your hand to smooth all over the cake! :)
Course I had some extra cake mix so I just HAD to use Gramma's mini cupcake pan!!! SO CUTE!!!!!! She ended up giving the pans to me, so now I will make mini cupcakes ALL THE TIME! They are terrible because they are bite size so you end up eating like... 10 of them! HAHA! 
I used royal icing to make some flowers to put on top of the cake. Everyone was watching me... so the first few turned out really terrible because I was shaking so bad. HAHA! But the rest turned out good! 
 Et Voilà! Le gâteau fini! (The finished cake ;D)
I just love the colors! The green on the leaves is so vibrant! Well, the flowers (being made with royal icing and all) turned out to be hard as a rock so we couldn't even cut through them. HAHA! Sooo... next time that I actually want to EAT the flowers, I will make them with a stiff buttercream. :)
Well, that is all for now! Hope you have a wonderful night! 
Au Revoir! À bientôt! (See you soon :))
