To keep the edge of the plate clean while frosting the cake, place several strips of waxed paper around the edge of the plate, place the cake on the paper, frost the cake, then carefully remove and discard the strips.
Edible flowers make a fresh and elegant statement on top of this delicious cake. They can be found in large specialty grocery stores, or select your own organically grown pansies, chive blossoms or violas.
