I am not the girl from Ipanema but I definitely love Rio and Copacabana’s famous sidewalk design.

I am a Brazilian by birth, so I had to celebrate my birthday in style.

I hope you like my interpretation of Rio!

Happy Birthday to me!
Copacabana Sidewalk Cake


I was inspired to make this cake after I watched Joshua John Russell teaching a modern buttercream class on Craftsy. He showed how to make a bow and I took the opportunity to incorporate it in this cake. It is amazing how much you can learn online but I still love to take classes in person.  The red roses are sugar flowers made especially for a 81 year old woman that got this cake as a gift. This was a chocolate cake for 40 people, with fresh raspberry jam and chocolate ganache. Black and red are her favorite colors. Very chic!!!
