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 raspberry-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!!

I love it!
Thank you so much for answering my question. 🙂
I love your blog. I would love to know what brand and what piping tip did you use to make the flowers. Thank you!
Hi Vanessa, I use Wilton metal tips because they’re so readily available and always do the trick. #129 and #224 are a larger and smaller tip that will make two sizes of these twist flowers – there are likely other sizes that can be used in the same way. They have a star-ish shape to the openings with a circular center – you can see what they look like in the picture above. Hope that helps!

Found you over at Making the World Cuter. What a gorgeous cake! And the stand it’s on is quite lovely too. It would be hard for me to cut in to a cake that looks so nice. Maybe you could just spray some poly on it and keep it as a cake shrine? haha
So pretty! Almost too pretty to eat!
