Appreciation Cake

Green Flower Cake

green flower cakeThis is a simple 2 layer cake I made which I dyed the rolled fondant green before laying on top of the cake. Then I used roses I had previously made with royal icing. Then I used regular buttercream icing to do the cornelli lace. I used rolled fondant and a flower cutter for the flowers on the side.

Floral Rose Cake

Floral Rose CakeThis two tiered floral cake was done for a big birthday celebration. I used spring colors to make buttercream roses, and used some royal icing apple blossoms and daises as well. There is a lattice work border at the base of each tier, and sweet pea flower borders at the top of the bottom tier. The inscriptions were done on the sides of the cake.

Tip: If you're making a lot of roses, you can do them in advance and freeze them. I make each one on a square of parchment paper and then place them on a tray to freeze. When you are ready to use them, simply peel back the piece of parchment paper and place the rose where you want. When frozen, you can touch the petals and you won't mess the rose up.

Guns and Roses Cake

guns and roses cakeFirst I baked a 7 inch round, 5 inch square and a 4 inch round cake to make up the 3 layers. All 3 were a different flavor. I allowed them to cool thoroughly before slicing layers then putting buttercream and raspberry jam between each layer. once they were assembled I put them in the fridge to further firming up before icing them.

I had coloured each cake accordingly, then covered. I used cake dowels to hold up each tier.

The decorations were made a couple of weeks in advance to allow the royal icing and flower paste to dry thoroughly.

On the middle tier, I piped 5 straight lines with coloured royal icing before putting on the music notes.

Drawn Rose Cake

drawn rose cakeThis is a type of rose I have been drawing since I was pretty young. I like to shade with a pencil when I draw it ... so when I did it on a cake I used different shades of each color and used a skewer to swirl them together for a different kind of effect.
