I've been hoping you would do another video. I'm very interested in BC flowers so your videos really help me. You should do a video about it!!

Anyway, thanks for sharing it with us!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Serious! That was really fun! I was wondering what kind of buttercream you use? It's so nice and smooth!!

lbass-what flowers would you like to see? lol-I get a lot of requests for bc flowers but no one is ever specific, 'Oh, just flowers!' icon_biggrin.gif This weekend I hope to do another video, I plan on doing hydrangeas, roses, Gerber daisies, Dahlias, sunflowers and maybe some Poppies. I say *plan* because a few of these flowers I haven't made yet so I'm not sure how they'll turn out icon_lol.gif

CakeDiane -I actually have all my bc recipes posted on here, just click on my profile and you can access my recipes there. I like your name btw, cute play on words icon_lol.gif

WOOHOO!! Another Serious Cakes video! I'm there... LOL!

I need to watch again, because I saw you do orchids once (I think it was you) and I need to figure that out. I made my first flowers in 10 years last weekend. Much practice is needed!!

WOW! Just watched, love the morning glories. I did them in RI, on a lily nail, for our wedding cake 5 years ago.

So here's the question... how do you figure these things out? Maybe I'm just too precise or something, but I have a hard time figuring out how to just pipe it out and have it look like a flower.

Generally I either have a picture of the flower or the flower itself (the snap dragons grow in my backyard icon_biggrin.gif ) and I try to figure out what tip will get me the look I want. OR, in the case of the morning glories, I use Wilton's instructions and adapt them so I can pipe it right on the cake.
I of course do fail sometimes, like with those Gerber daisies, I've made them at least 4 times and still can't get them quite right. However, I just borrowed a book from the library by Whimsical Bakehouse and they show how to do them, I'll be trying again this coming weekend icon_biggrin.gif

See me?! (Raised hand waving wildly) I'd love to see hydrangeas and daisies. I Love your videos - I watch them again and again and imagine myself doing it, that reverse rose came out beautiful.

Thanks so much for sharing your talent!

I see you cupcakemkr icon_lol.gif Love your avatar, too cute!! I have actually done hydrangea's before, I did them on my teapot cake but I didn't film it because it was my first attempt. I will definitely film it this time *barring any unforeseen mishaps like maybe a flock of geese flying through my kitchen*.
lol-I was so excited about that reverse rose! I made them on my Barbie cake by accident, I was trying to pipe a regular rose but it wasn't working right, so I started trying to add more petals on top of the ones I had already piped, hence the reverse rose was born! I think I'll still be doing some roses the old way but the reverse rose allows you to pipe closer to other flowers without wrecking them. Can't wait to do them on a fully flowered cake icon_wink.gif

I just watched all of your other videos--they are GREAT! Thanks for taking the time to make those for us! I have another question about that buttercream---does the cake have to stay refrigerated or can it stay out for a day or two? I definately want to try it!!

Well... I'm not Serious_Cakes, but I think I can answer this. The buttercream can stay out, no problem. I had a cake sit out overnight wiht this icing, so sweat. There really isn't anything in it to spoil by the time you get it together. AND... it crusts, so it's not likely to melt.

Yes, vstar_pilot is absolutely right, this buttercream is fine at room temp, to me refrigeration just causes problems icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks serious, loved watching your video. I'm amazed at how you could pipe the Happy Birthday on the cake so straight. You didn't have little pinpokes on there to guide you did you? Also what tip are you using for your leaves? What ever one I usually use comes out forked at the end. icon_confused.gif Thanks again for sharring!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Cool Video! THanks more than you know. These were one of my granddaddy's favorite flowers. After he did, I decoupaged a placque
for my grandmother with Morning Glories. I will make these for my aunt(the only living sibling left.) How do I find your other videos? [email protected] Thanks again!

cocobean-No, I freehanded that, I'm alright piping in a straight line for short distances icon_lol.gif I have another video where I piped 'Congratulations'-yeah, had to mark the cake for that one icon_biggrin.gif The leaves are done with a #352 tip, sooooo much better than the traditional tip. They should have them where ever you normally buy your caking supplies.

elainec -Aw!! That's so cool!! I love Morning Glories, I tried to grow all different colors a few years ago but I only had one color come up icon_lol.gif Here's a link to my other videos:
