I threw together this Spring Flowers cake kind of last minute. Someone I work with asked if I could do a 1/4 sheet double layer overnight for a birthday. So I did the bottom layer chocolate and the top vanilla with frosting in the middle.
I had made the drop flowers the weekend before for a project I had planned earlier in the week. These drop flowers are so easy and when they dry after a couple days I put them in a container and stick them in the freezer. So I found a picture of a clay flower pot, traced it onto parchment paper. Traced the outline with piping gel and transferred it onto the cake. I mixed a red frosting I had left over from another cake and some orange I also had and came up with a sort of terra cotta looking color.
I outlined it in black and filled it in with the star tip. I put a small dab of frosting on the back of the hard frosting flowers and just stacked them up. I filled in the spaces with some very simple leaves using the Wilton Leaf tip.
This is my 10th cake I have done after my class and I can see my writing is getting a lot better. Plus I read in one of my books to add a little bit of piping gel to your writing frosting which makes a huge difference!!
Our little neightbour Poppy's 8th birthday was approaching and she told me she wanted a Tudor Rose birthday cake please! A school project had peeked her interest and now she was just a tad obsessed and a promise of a birthday visit to Hampton Court Palace and she was beside herself.
I went on the internet and found a colouring page of a Tudor Rose and enlarged it. I cut the middle portion out so that I had a template. I baked a chocolate cake in a rectangle pan when cool, put the template on and dusted lightly with icing sugar so get shape. Iced with Wilton stars with butter cream which had been coloured appropriately.
She was delighted with the result of her Tudor Rose Birthday Cake and so was I.
For information the Tudor Rose is made up of the white rose of York and the red rose of Lancaster, the gold signifies the crown.
This is a homemade Flower Basket Cake I made for a friend for a farewell party. I made all the flowers and leaves several days in advance using sugar paste, and I stored it in an air-tight container.
I made two 11” round pan butter cakes and sandwiched them with butter icing. I put a light icing coating on the top and sides of the cake . Then using a basket tip, I started weaving the pattern using butter icing. When done with the basket, I added the flowers and the leaves.
I made the bumble bee from the sugar paste. I used Wilton colours and the bumble bee came out very cute. It turned out great. Everyone thought it was beautiful and tasted great too!
This is a Sunflower Pot Cake made for our town's auction to raise money for the church. This whole cake was edible except the ribbon. This is an 8" round German chocolate cake iced with white frosting to hold the Monetta chocolate cream wafer sticks from Aldi's in place to make the pot.
On top I crushed up Oreo cookies to make soil. I then made the sunflowers out of gumpaste and placed those on top of the pot. I put a ribbon around the bottom to give it decoration.
I made this sunflower cake for a friend. I bought a sunflower pan, made it and put a 9in layer of cake under it. I just used a #233 Wilton tip on the sides. I used a #150 for the sunflower petals. A #3 for the middle of the petals. And last but not least a #12 for the seeds.
