Place white chocolate buttons in a silicone jug floating in small saucepan of shallow water, gently heat until melted. Work quickly to pour the chocolate into a sandwich bag,
trim the edge of the bag and pipe the writing onto the cake, finishing off with fresh roses and ribbon.
I covered the board with silver embossed paper and tied sheer ribbon around the board edge finish with a bow.
