I’m calling this the Secret Garden Cake because that’s what kept running through my mind as I was decorating it. It was so, so beautiful, I just want to have it on display in my craft room.
The light pink and lavender flowers were made from homemade marshmallow fondant, which was rolled and cut out with flower cutters in a variety of shapes and sizes. Olivia had such a great time cutting out the flowers with me; all of the lavender flowers on the cake were hers. The rasberry-colored flowers are simple twist flowers made from royal icing. Here’s a little visual tutorial:
If you’re looking for a good beginning piped flower to make, this is the one! The tip does all the work and you can find it in a variety of sizes.
Just wait for your flowers to dry, pop them off the wax paper, and stick them on to your iced cake. I first piped the stems, then placed clusters of the fondant and piped flowers, then filled in with leaves.
The finished cake looks stunning and really, it’s so simple!!
