Oh my goodness that is a breathtaking cake. How long did it take you to make?
Thanks it took me some time because the tulip's wouldn't stay on the side of the cake as they are in the wilton cake, but I did find the flowers easy to make. I hand painted each one because I don't like the way gumpaste looks when the colour is mixed into it. Hand painting makes them much softer I think. My daughter loved the cake and so did everyone at the party. The tulips are easier to make than roses and the leafs were just plan fun to make.
what a stunning cake. i love the bold colors, the non-traditional icing technique. beautiful.
This cake is beautiful!! Tulips are my fav flower! You did such a great job!! Thanks for sharing!!!
I'm in love with your cake. Tulips are one of my fav flowers too. Fabulous job. I can't stop looking at it!
Wow! That is one lovely cake. Great job! Would kindly share the instructions for making the tulips please? My sister's favourite flower is the tulip and I would just love to make this cake for her.
This cake is exquisite. I too would like to know how you made the flowers as well as painting them. That icing technique is a wow factor for me!!! How do you do it?
Beautiful Cake! I love everything, but especially the icing technique! How did you do it? Are the instructions on the wilton site?
I was going to do this for this past mothers day but decided against it. I like yours better. You did a great job.
What a gorgeous cake!! How did you make the tulips -- gumpaste?
the instructions are from the wilton beautiful gumpaste flowers book. The icing technique is just using the small straight blade for icing. I just did upward strokes from bottom to top. This is a great way to do a cake if you can't get your icing smooth but it looks very elegant. And the technique is something I just started doing on my own. Never saw this on any cake so that is why I like doing it. Thanks for all the great comment's
on my cake.
what a gorgeous cake. looks better than the wilton one.
Thank you very much! You are a star Sue!!!
