Hi everybody! Today we had so much fun making this cake. I used a technique that was simple but elegant. I hope that you like it too— I’m not sure what to call it, so I’m calling it the petal effect…. :0) —
I started with vanilla buttercream, a smallish angled spatula with a rounded edge, and a piping bag fitted with a medium sized round tip (I used a Wilton Tip 12).
Now that you know how, grab a cake & beautify it! :0) — I crumb coated my tiers, stacked them, and then started piping and spreading. It takes a little while to make it all the way around, but the results are so worth it!
I topped off mine with a gum paste flower—but really, it would have been fine without anything at all. We taped a video tutorial today as I decorated the cake–I’ll post it soon! I would love to do cupcakes sometime using this same technique. I’ll show you when I do! :0) —
Have a great weekend!
