This is a confirmation cake that my daughter and I made for my niece. It is decorated with a rosary made from a edible chocolate Celtic cross, fondant beads, and nonperal silver beads. It is an elegant but simple design. This cake can be used for a Confirmation or First Communion. It has a rich chocolate flavor. The cake recipe was based on the "Bernachon Palet D’or Gateau" recipe in Rose Beranbaum’s Rose's Heavenly Cakes.
