can't see the photos you're talking about.......and I've never worked with these pans...however.......when I took my wilton class, one girl used the rose bundt pan as her character cake and she decorated it with stars .....but also I read on a thread on CC one time where someone suggested melting the candy melts in the appropriate colors, in your case yellow, maybe some orange for accents, and brown for the center and then bake your cake as usual, remove it from the pan, and then use the melted candy melts to paint the inside of the cake pan where the imprint of the flower is then you could just fill it up a 1/4 inch or so thick with just some yellow candy melts for background color then put the cake back in the pan upside down...pop the whole thing in the fridge and when the candy melts harden back up you can remove the cake from the pan again and you have a chocolate coated cake with a wonderful design. Hope this helps you.
thanks KHalstead not sure why the pictures didnt come out they were there this morning so who knows but thanks again
I have the Nordic Ware sunflower pan. What I did is put brown dots in middle like the middle of flower. I then took tip352, med consistancy BC, started around the bottom and just made leaves all the way around (kinda big), just repeated that until I got to the top. Put some edible clear sparkles on. Very pretty, and easy.
khalsted...I like your reccommendation. My daughter's teacher gave me a CASTLE shaped bundt pan to use for their end of the year fairytale adventure. I have aideas for a cake underneath and was trying to figure out how to decorate the shaped part.
Schmoop- I decorated a shaped castle pan. It is in my photosbeside the deer head. Not my best decorating job, but it was for my DD. Aren't I mother of the year?
I have the large rose bundt pan, and have never frosted it. I've drizzled it with thinned icing, or just sprinkled powdered sugar over it.
I have several shaped bundt pans. I buy them because of the detail and don't frost them.
