I know they´re old-fashioned, but i absolutely LOVE pansies!
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!
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.
Made in the large size muffin pan. Buttercream icing and royal icing pansies. Another cake for the dessert auction for my church’s youth group.
This is a fondant covered cake. The 10in base is a single layer of WASC vanilla w/lemon filling. The center tier has 2 6in WASC lemon cakes w/raspberry filling double stacked as a barrel. The top tier is a 4in WASC vanilla w/lemon. Center tier is covered in individually cut petals of marbled fondant graduating from lavender to cream. Pansies are 50/50 gumpaste & fondant. Ribbon is fondant made w/an extruder and brushed w/luster dust. Inspired by a variety of cakes here on CC.
4″ and 3″ cakes carved into shape, iced with buttercream then covered with fondant. Edible pansies ordered online.
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.
This is a vanilla spice cake with cinnamon buttercream. Royal icing pansies and buttercream leaves. I had intended for this to be “fall thememed” … but by the time it was finished it was extrememly Christmas like … thankfully it was a spur-of-the moment donated cake and it’s after Thanksgiving!
made these hand painted pansy cakes for identical twins turning 14.
Small oval cake with image of the birthday girl MANY years ago. Buttercream icing with royal pansies. Chocolate cake.
Fondant covered accented w/ gumpaste bow and flowers. TFL!
this was my entry for the NCACS this weekend. Hand cut and decorated with royal icing. the pansies are hand painted, the pink one is just icing, and the others are stenciled. Spoon heads are curved and handles are shaped and covered in RI and silver luster dust. They got second place.
this is my basket cake from an other angle.
Made this one for my own birthday! Fondant covered with hand-made, hand-painted gumpaste pansies! Love the way they turned out!
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.
Vanilla cake, Buttercream frosting done in basket weave. There are about 24 Gumpaste pansies on this cake, each one hand painted.
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.
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.
