My mum is a florist and I have always wanted to make here a florist shop cake. This florist cake was the end result. I had a vague idea of what I wanted it to look like but a lot of it evolved as I went along.

The cake was a Madeira cake with butter cream icing with 3 layers. I needed the extra height for the shop front. I 'dirty iced it' first and then put the fondant on to create a smooth (ish) base.

I used gelatine sheets with the criss cross patterns for the windows cut to size and painted a pretend interior to the shop. Made the window frames and painted them and then applied this to the front of the cake. The same applied to the door.

I made rice crispie treats and molded them into two boxes for the stands and then covered those with fondant.

All the flowers were made with petal paste as where the containers. The basket was made of homemade modelling chocolate. It was pretty firm compared with the shop bought variety but worked. The only non edible elements were the wires for the flowers and price tickets and the two wooden screwers used to support the green and white rice paper awning.

I made a figure using modelling chocolate and it all turned out pretty much how I imagined!

My mum cried when she saw it, which was a good thing I think. She also kept all the flowers!

Homemade cupcake flower cake

by Jaime
(Bradenton FL)


this is one of the first cakes I have ever made. which was about a year ago. It was a friend of mines bday and I wanted to make her a flower cake but a flat normal cake just wouldnt do so i came up with this idea with a little help from some pictures I saw online. Its a real vase with a floral foam ball down inside the cupcakes are held on with wood screwers you wanna make sure you have a pretty dense cake to make this work I find that if you just decrease the amount of water in oil just a little bit and add and extra egg it works perfectly also adding a package of pudding mix will help make it dense yet moist

Coolest Bouquet Of Flowers Cake 62

Homemade Bouquet Of Flowers Cake

Homemade Bouquet Of Flowers Cake

I had fun doing this Bouquet Of Flowers Cake and it was easy. Just bake cupcakes from the box choosing your flavor, I used lemon cake. Bought a 7 dollars flower pot, some toothpicks and some artificial leaves. I put the Styrofoam ball in the flower pot (you can go as big or small as you want).

I used Wilton's buttercream icing and color dye. I stuck one toothpick in at a time and iced my cupcakes first and then placed the cupcake on the toothpick. I added the leaves last but would probably add them first if I did it again.
I was very happy with the outcome.

Made this for my mother in law for mother's day. She loved it!

Baby in Flower Cake

Baby in Flower Cake

This baby in flower cake was my second attempt at fondant. I sculpted the baby out of fondant and the flower, the cake was choc, buttercream icing is under the blue background.

This was for my sister's baby shower. Everybody thought it was great. I had so much fun making it. The flower didn't have enough time to set though. Make sure you do things like that a few days ahead.

Homemade Daisy Flower Birthday Cake

Homemade Daisy Flower Birthday Cake

This Daisy Flower Birthday Cake is a cake for my daughter's first birthday. This was my first time at making a cake for a birthday and the first time I ever used fondant icing.

I got a lot of advise from the web page of Peggy Weaver. I had lot of fun, my husband helped me make it so it was good time spending with my hubby too.
