    I have to make a simple 8" round bridal shower cake this weekend and was wondering if anyone had some suggestions for some fall-ish flowers I could add to the top along with her monogram. It will be a simple cake in vanilla buttercream (maybe the petal effect or ridges around the sides) but I think a couple fall-colored flowers would add elegance and some color. Buttercream or gumpaste/fondant suggestions welcome! Or share some of your fall cake designs!
    Thanks!!

    When I think fall, I think mums. Melissa shows how 2 make them from buttercream on her cupcake tutorial. So pretty!

  3. Hi Shannon! I love fall themes. We have one fall themed cake video (that I'm linking below), just in case you'd like to incorporate maybe a few acorns or pretty leaves among your flowers.

    Aliya and I are on the same wavelength...mums popped to mind first. But any of the flowers in the tutorials below could be made in fall colors and work great. So, pick a couple of the flowers that you enjoy piping the most and go for it.
