More Flowers!

Apple Blossoms and the Primrose are some of the most delicate flowers I’ve learned to make. The Apple Blossom (the larger of the two) has a heart shaped petal with a center to the flower. The Primrose is a lot smaller, almost a quarter of the size of the larger.

 

These were made using Royal Icing. This is the icing that hardens to a crisp. The flowers are like candy. Edible flowers that can be stored for months after they dry.

Button Flowers and Pansies

Gum paste is a fun thing to work with when you know you are making something that will look so cute you will want to eat it for sure! Check out these cute-as-a-button button flowers.

I had yellow on hand but these flowers can be any combination of colors.

With striping on the largest flower and dots on the middle flower, it adds texture to whatever you are decorating.

And the button middle holds it all together. These are great for cupcakes or a fun summery cake!

The pansies are just as cute but a little more delicate looking.

Again, pink and purple are what I had on hand but the combination of colors are endless. The petals are rubbed to make them look frail but really these pretty flowers are perfect for a cupcake or cake that will be setting out for a long period of time.

I’m having fun learning all these new flowers. Check back for more!

Flowers

I’ve learned to make ribbon roses. When I made this cake, I decided to make it colorful and to kind of represent my family in colors.

My oldest daughter loves pink. My second daughter is very fond of purple, but specifically violet. My husband favors blue and my favorite flower is a yellow rose. The green leaves are for my son who insists that no one else can like green because it is his favorite color!

Then with the addition of swirl drop flowers in the same colors, I thought it made a fun summery cake.
What do you think?

Cupcakes

Need a sugar rush? How about trying some swirly cupcakes? Check out the height on these…

I made some cupcakes for campers at my daughters’ taekwondo camp last week. I know the campers didn’t really need any more sugar but they were sure fun to make.

 

I used Wilton coloring spray to color the swirly tops. I had fun playing with the flowers too.

 

 The swirl drop flower and drop flowers are the pink flowers. The yellow is called a shaggy mum and the blue flower is a pompom flower.

Birthday Balloons

More fun with new templates.

Who wouldn’t love some balloons for their birthday?

New designs

I’ve been learning a few tricks to different decorating techniques. Such as printing templates for cake pictures like the taekwondo cakes below. This cupcake is also a template but decorated with a different tip.

A fun cake to have anytime. This one happens to be one layer of chocolate cake with white chocolate filling and vanilla icing. The cupcake design and border are vanilla icing just tinted to give the cake some “pop”.
