Savory Sight: Beautiful Kentucky Derby Cake

Somehow, a themed cake makes the party. People will lick their lips at any delicious dessert, but the wonderfully thematic cake will be talked about afterwards.

This past weekend TeamSugar member eclaireassuch held a Kentucky Derby Party and created a fantastic cake to go along with it. She decorated a chocolate-nutella cake with intricate red roses — like the ones the winner wears — and topped that with a ring of horses.

After the tragic end where Eight Belles died, she knocked one of the horses over. She admits now, it was probably in poor taste. Yet, I still have to admire her creation. What do you guys think? Despite the dark humor, don't you want to just dive head first into that ring of roses?!

Okay let me just say that I am a total animal loving vegetarian and it was so tragic what happened to Eight Belles BUT, when I saw the picture with the little plastic horse knocked over, I laughed, cause that's just really funny.

You had me at "Nutella". And sometimes... poor taste = funny. I have to say I laughed when I read that. But, when I heard on TV the moment they announched she was euthanized, I was VERY shocked and saddened.

That is so pretty and, unlike some other pretty cakes, it also looks yummy. I love good old-fashioned flower-topped cakes.
