I could have done with watching this last week as I had a go at making my first petal cake. The cakes shown above are beautiful.
Hey :) i thought you did an amazing job.. your cake is stunning :)
the 'puter erased my note above......oh well. I made my cake basically the same way as the lady in the video tutorial. Except that I hated the top part so much that I threw the silicone mold in the trash. It would have looked better with a plain smooth fondant surface on the 2nd tier. LIve and learn, experiment and play, that's my motto. They all taste good after the decorations are ripped off. And it took me hours and hours to do all of those petals, argghhhh. monotony for sure. Thanks for the sweet words!!
what amazes me is how beautifully level everything is. Did you mark the cake so you knew where to do each layer or just do it by eye? Were your petals a mix of sugarpaste (fondant) and modelling paste?
fondant & tylose, and just eyeballed.
your very welcome :) Mbalaska
