Flower Pot Cakes

Flower pot cakes make elegant Mother's Day cakes or just a cake for a female who enjoys flowers.

The pot itself can be shaped by carving the stacked cake while upside down. Use a serrated knife to trim the excess off in an angle so the top of the cake will be wider than the bottom.

Flower Pot of Roses Cake

The sides of the cake are covered with fondant strips cut to form wooden lats. Then the cake is tied with a pink bow.

The flowers were made by rolling strips of fondant to form ribbon roses. Green leaves were randomly placed in between them.

The pot was shaped by creating a rim with the fondant. The dirt is crumbled chocolate cookies. The gum paste daisies were formed on wires and inserted into drinking straws placed into the cake.
