Elegant White Buttercream Flowers- A Cake Decorating Video Tutorial by MyCakeSchool.com!


For this tutorial, we stacked 8 inch and 6 inch tiers. As usual, the top tier is on it's own cardboard cake circle cut to the size of the cake, and it is resting on 4 bubble tea straw supports (cut to the height of the bottom tier.) 

Buttercream- We used our Classic Vanilla Buttercream Frosting. Use a frosting that contains butter as it will firm up in the freezer more quickly and will stay firm a bit longer as you place your flowers onto the cake.

Piping Tips: Tip 104 and 125 for flowers. Tip 12 (medium round tip for leaves), Tip 4 for bead border, Grass Tip 233 for centers, Tip 21 for centers

Parchment or Waxed Paper 

Rose nail

Miscellaneous: Disposable piping bags, couplers, turntable (optional), spatula and or bench scraper for frosting the cake with a smooth finish

  1. Thanks ladies!

    @Debbie, I think that you may be seeing the yellow writing/logo on our piping bags. We didn't add any yellow. However, the frosted cake does look a shade or two more yellow in the video than it was-- our classic vanilla recipe only has a slight yellow/ivory tint from the butter in the recipe.

  2. Good Morning This Is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!, Where I Live I Only Use All Shortening Frosting Because of My Temperature, Do You Think I can Achieve This With All Shortening Base Frosting??

  3. Hello! I'm glad that you liked it! I would do a practice run with just piping a flower or two and freezing them to see how they firm up when frozen. It'll take a little longer but I would think it would work.

    Another option is to pipe your flowers and let them dry at room temperature for maybe 1 1/2- 2 days if it is a non perishable, crusting frosting. We used this technique in this tutorial:

    Good luck! ;0)

  4. Hi Kim, you can cut a parchment circle slightly smaller than the diameter of the cake and place where the cake will be resting. This will help to prevent sticking.
