I am SO ready for spring. I know there are a few weeks left of winter. But even if there is snow on the ground and very few flowers to be seen, I can at least create a few of my own, can't I?
Flowers on a cake can create wonderful dimension.
I want to share just how I create some interesting flowers on a cake.
Take two shades of pink fondant, roll into sausages and twist together,
Roll out thinly, and cut three petals with a rose petal cutter.
Cut a small V, using the v shaped end of your rose cutter,
Creating the center of the tulip.
Press into an impression mat, then apply the center petal on the end of your
Piped or fondant green stem.
Press the other two petals into the impression mat and
Take a small ball of lilac or pink fondant.
Using your ball tool, flatten end
Roll pinched end of flower into a long funnel,
Edge over the front, creating a trumpet flower.
Apply on greenery on Cake.
Repeat the process in a lighter shade of pink or lilac and
Place on top of the first trumpet flower.
