I had an order for a 12" square graduation cake with royal and gold (school colors) gerber daisies. Well...I tried a gumpaste daisy and was going to do a gift box cake with the daisy as the center of the bow. It looked awful...won't go into details because they don't matter, so I tried to do them in BC and this is what came out. It looks worse than the first one. I don't know what to do to fix it. If anybody has any ideas they would be greatly appreciated. TIA --Jen

An idea is to pipe an inner border. I go with a finer tip than a larger tip--For this cake I might even stripe the bag to use both colors and just clip the tip off so it's just a round tip ( I use parchment bags)--I just make a scrolly type border and break where there's other decor--like at the flowers that overlap inot the inner border area.

But come in from the edge of the cake a good inch and a half-ish. Just be confident and artistic and practice on the bottom of the cake pan or on the table--don't be shy or tentative.

Just a thought for you.

I agree..It doesn't look that bad just needs a colorful border.Do a striped one and it will make the flowers pop!!!

You could een try this border that I have been trying. There is even the link that shows how to do it.
