Today we’ve put together a cake design in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We have all been effected by breast cancer…whether personally or through a loved one. Today’s cake design is simple, but highlights the hope that we all hold for a cure. For those of you who are looking for cake ideas for various fundraisers and events this month, I hope you find our tutorial helpful!
I tinted my frosting with Americolor Deep Pink, Wilton Rose, and Americolor Chocolate Brown. Using a Wilton piping tip 2, I piped a tree trunk in the center of the cake. I basically started with an outline of the trunk.
I filled in the trunk with more piped strands of frosting to give the tree more texture. Next, I piped pink ribbons for Breast Cancer Awareness all over the cake in various shades of pink. Any small round tip will do, but I used a Wilton 2.
I also filled in the tree with words that I associate with breast cancer. Words like “hope”, “fight”, “find a cure”, “survivor”, etc.
I continued to fill in our tree, with words, ribbons, hearts, dots, etc. and finally I decided to sneak in some leaves too. For the leaves, I used a Wilton leaf tip 352. The buttercream for my leaves was tinted with Americolor Electric Green.
Around the sides of the cake, I continued piping words that I associate with Breast Cancer Awareness. This is similar to a design I’ve done in the past…I like the white on white. It doesn’t distract from our tree, but adds more meaning to or design.
I added a ball border using a medium sized round tip (Tip 10), and I added the word “hope” in white using a Wilton tip 2.
Thanks for joining us, we’ll see you next time!
