The description on the box says it's supposed to be a "buttery vanilla" but to me it tasted more like "food coloring vanilla", lol. I'm not sure if using an extender would change the flavor or not since I just used the straight cake mix. The cake in my avatar was made with the pink velvet cake mix & everyone at the party said it was good but most people will be polite & not tell you your cake tastes funny while they are chowing down on it. Maybe I'm just more sensitive to...
Are you making a scratch cake or using the Duncan Hines Pink Velvet Cake Mix? I ask because I've made the cake mix before & it just tasted like a butter recipe yellow cake with a ton of food coloring in it. I used my sweet cream vanilla buttercream on it which is my basic go to buttercream. If you are feeling adventurous, maybe try adding some raspberry, strawberry, or lemon extract, especially if you are using the mix because it really does need something to help out the...
I couldn't figure out how to add an image of a photo I saved into my favorites, so I'm just posting the link. I don't think these are the exact cake pops you were planning on making, but these look so easy you may want to take a look.

Apparently OP posted just before I did, it definitely appears those are plunger flowers as opposed to the molds like I used.
I ordered a mold that had teeny tiny flowers on it last year, I believe from Global Sugar Art. The flowers were very tiny, only about half a centimeter.
Even better than a ruler, use one of those plastic triangle rulers from the school supply section in department stores. It has a flat side that will keep your angle straight & a ruler so you can measure how far apart you are placing your quilts. I did this cake using that method. Well I was hoping the quilting part showed up better but it looks like between the lighting in the pic & the black fondant you can't really see it.
I don't know how you would be able to keep the Hulk hand bursting through the top from showing on the Frozen side. Sounds like they may be trying to incorporate a boy's & a girl's cake into the same giant cake. Sounds like a lot of work just to figure out the design much less executing it. If it were me, I would suggest to scale down the # of tiers & just make each kid their own individual cake in a single or 2 tier cake that would still give them the serving count they...
Actually I didn't add anything to the buttercream, just used the straight out of the bowl of buttercream I frosted the cake with. The beauty of brush embroidery is that it is easy to correct any "mistakes" you might make by piping over or smoothing it out with your paintbrush. Mine may not be as professional as some, but I was pleased with the look. Here is a close up pic of one the cakes I did using straight buttercream. My piping skills aren't that great, but the brush...
I'm just a hobby baker, but when I made my cakes with brush embroidery I just used the same buttercream that I used to cover the cake with. They were covered in fondant, it may make a difference if you are strictly covering in buttercream though, but unfortunately I can't answer for that situation as I have only done the brush embroidery on fondant using buttercream.
I'm pretty sure you can just purchase gumpaste flowers online & have them shipped to you... I'm not sure which sites would ship to your country, but it might be worth it for you to take a look online for suppliers that will. I've not had much experience with flowers myself & if I was going to make a wedding cake I would probably order the flowers.   Sorry I'm not sure about the lace, it's probably some sort of mold. Maybe you could find one online that looks similar.
