So up until now, I have done mostly upscale cupcakes and wedding cakes; I don't have much experience with smaller cakes for other occasions. However, I am starting to get asked a lot about it but need some help!
I have a client who wants a cake for a "girls night in." It will be a single cake as it's only a small group of older women, but she wants it bright and springy - especially mentioned using yellow's. My first thought was sunflowers mostly because I just love them. Anyone have some ideas on how to do something simple but elegant for these ladies?
As of now, I am thinking a small round cake with a regular buttercream and some yellow piping and some sunflower decor. Maybe some yellow sugar pearls, too.
Feedback is much appreciated!
Maybe a "basket" of sunflowers.
You could pipe a basket weave on the sides and fill the inside of your "basket" with those sunflowers that you want on there. You can make your sunflowers life-sized; it'll still be simple- not a whole lot of piping needed, but still pretty!
Oh what a fabulous idea! Chocolate frosting for the basket portion?
I have only toodled around with the basketweave design in the past - I had success with it but I haven't done it on a whole cake. Maybe it's time to give it a go!
I suppose there are white baskets, too LOL. Especially in the springtime!
When I think of yellow flowers I think daffodill. Sunflowers to me are orange :)
Wonderful - thank you for the idea! I love the basket!
You know, I was just thinking about the same thing! Daffodils would be pretty - good think! I may just make my own yellow flower
