I love the look on the sides of this cake. Is this called "Petal Effect", and can someone explain to me how this is done? Is it basically a pear border that you flatten with your finger?? I can't find the tutorial anywhere on here. Thanks!

See http://iammommy.typepad.com/i_am_baker/page/2/
Amanda (I am mommy and I am baker) shows how to pipe it.
If you don't see the "Pink Cake" go to "Next"--every time she posts it shoves things down, so it may go from one page to the next. (Hope that makes sense).

mycakeschool.com has a tutorial on the petal effect and its a little different than I am Baker, using a 12 tip and offset spatula. That's the technique I used and loved the outcome.

It looks to me like mycakeschool.com requires a 1 year membership for $30.00 to see the tutorials.

You can look through the blog for some really great tutorials w/o being a member. The petal effect is in there. http://www.mycakeschool.com/blog/page/4/

However, I'm really pleased with with I've seen so far and for $30 / year, that's less than one "coffee out" per month.

I feel like I've gotten my money's worth from mycakeschool as there aren't any classes near me to take other than Wilton.
