I'm planning my final cake for Wilton III. I want to try a tiered cake - both covered in fondant & use the royal icing Easter Lilies. I was wanting to add something & wondered if putting buttercream cornelli lace on top of the fondant would be appropriate. What would then be a good border? Shells? or more lilies? Oh, I think I'd keep the fondant & buttercream white - I thought it might be more elegant with the white lilies.
thanks for the ideas...
Cornelli lace would look great!!! I have a ton of cakes in my photos with cornelli on fondant as well (wedding cakes)!
It's going to be a beautiful final cake! Good luck!!!!!! I'd actually have to see a similar cake to recommend a border but you might find something I have done to be inspiring.
Your cakes look great! Thanks for sharing. I really like your Easter Lily cake. What did you use for the border? Just fondant balls? or ... I think that is kind of the idea I was thinking of, just didn't know how to do them.
Thanks for the tips.
Are you referring to the so called orchid cake I did recently? Yeah, that was my first attempt at making a gumpaste flower! If that's the cake you are referring to I used my pearl mold to make fondant pearls. I love doing that, if you couldn't tell!
Thank you for the compliment! Make sure you let me know when you post your class final so I can see it. I'm sure it will be gorgeous!!!!!!!!
Oh, I'm the one planning on doing the Easter Lilies LOL - Yes, your orchid cake is beautiful. I do like the pearls, but think one major thing at a time is enough - gotta conquer these lilies & the fondant & the 2 teired cake. My cake is due Friday - I guess I should start tonight! LOL
You will do fantastic!!!!! Does it have to be real cake? I have never taken Wilton courses so I don't know if you can use dummies or not!
