Hello friends! So I was asked to make a wedding cake blah blah...the bride just emailed me telling that she changed her mind about the design, I don't want to say NO because she's a good friend but I'm not sure how to make this cake? any advice, or tips? do I make individual flowers and then cover the cake? can I achieve this look with fondant? she only wants 2 small tiers...

I haven't made one like that yet but I l♥ve that style  ♥ ♥ ♥

 

I'd use stiff cornstarched fondant flavored with raspberry or whatever matches her cake flavor. I think I'd just apply them to the cake rather than make them in advance so they conform properly.

 

Ooooh so pretty.

AI generally roll my eyes when I see requests for tutorials, because I feel that most cakes are pretty self explanatory. You see it on the cake, so you do it to your cake! Well, not this one!! This looks HARD! Anyway I can think of to do it, would just look sloppy...I would LOVE a tutorial for this one!

bahaha! yeah, I know what you mean but this one looks so simple but I don't even know how to start LOL.

I read that the flowers are made out of chocolate, so that's a nono for me...I told the bride already and she changed her mind PHEEEEEEEEW..... now she wants this one :D
