This is the tulip cake I made for my daughter's grad party. It is not done the way wilton said to do it because I couldn't get the tulips to stay on the side of the cake like wilton did. They call it Tulip Splendor.

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.

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.

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.
