Top Pansy Cakes

While commonly thought of as a humble potted plant, the sweetly fragrant, edible blossoms of the pansy have historic roots. Glorified in  William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, “Cupid’s Flower” was used as a love potion- when dripped into the eyelids, the individual would fall madly in love with the next person they saw. The same is sure to happen when you see these Top Pansy Cakes!

Wedgwood Inspiration

By sheena
60th brthday cake …I was inspired by wedgwood japerware…Vanilla and chocolate cake layers, filled with chocolate buttercream and marzipan, and covered with vanilla fondant. The paisley lace are handpiped royal icing pieces which are individually stuck onto the fondant scolloped circles. The white flower pattern inbetween the two rows of lace are fondant cut outs for which I used the JEM elegant scroll cutter and cut out just the top half of the centre of the scroll design. I made all the flowers (pansy, chincherinchees, gypsophila) and foliage (ivy etc) and stand for the 60 out of gumpaste. The filigree 60 was also hand piped with royal icing. Fixing the lace pieces was torture but well worth the effort :) TFL!

He Loves Me...She Loves Me

Iced with French Buttercream Icing and all the flowers I made of Royal Icing. The Bride chose a clear topper that had daisies and the words, “He loves me… She loves me…

Not for my mom…but for a friend’s mom’s birthday tomorrow. Buttercream icing with royal icing pansies. I tried to put some shimmer dust on it. It looks great under the light, but kind of looks like dust when there is no light on it! Oh well ! It’s an alternate of the wilton 2 final cake.

Pansy cookies

By Mac
These cookies were for an 80th birthday party. Could not find a cookie cutter like I wanted, so I took a inexpensive tin one I found at craft store and reshaped it. I now keep several of those in different sizes for reshaping.

6 kinds of flowers!!

By sheena
8″ Cake – 2 layers of chocolate cake and 1 layer of vanilla cake with rich chocolate buttercream between the layers… Covered in vanilla fondant, ribbon below the top border is plastic ribbon. Borders, lace work, butterfly and piping detail on sides are all royal icing. Flowers (yellow lily, agapanthus, pansy, chincherinchee, gypsophila and daisy) and foliage are made of gumpaste. I really enjoyed all the royal icing work! :) Oh! and I made this (as an order) for a lady who really admires my work and wanted to show my work to her entire family (parents, siblings, husband and children)…she asked for an assortment of flowers. She and her family absolutely loved the cake :)

Flowers for Gran

By JWinslow
Butter pound cake with lemon/orange filling. The Rattan basket was made using 8, 9, 10 inch pans carved into shape and covered with fondant . The weave was made by atttaching the basket spines and then adding strips to create the look, finishing with a wash of diluted gel color mixed with vodka. All flowers are gum paste. There are lilacs, tulips, jonquils, roses, viola, lily of the valley and pansies.

For the love of Pansy

Pansy flower

By Cake_whiz
A pansy flower made from gum paste (can also be made with 50/50). I used the most basic cutters to make this… no fancy shmancy petal cutters.

Crystal Beauty

By snowy811
This was done as a Display cake for a friend’s bead shop. It is just a styrofoam cake dummy with Fondant Icing, Royal Pansies and Swarovski Crystal Necklaces. I wasn’t sure how it would look with Crystals on it but it turned out very nice and the Bride would get the Crystal Necklaces. The Swarovski Crystals are on the top and bottom layers.
