Pansy Christmas

 Pansy Christmas  on Cake Central

This is a vanilla spice cake with cinnamon buttercream. Royal icing pansies and buttercream leaves. I had intended for this to be "fall thememed" ... but by the time it was finished it was extrememly Christmas like ... thankfully it was a spur-of-the moment donated cake and it's after Thanksgiving! :)

Thanks everybody! The sparkly stuff is from Wilton (or something like that). I LOVE using it -- really brings an okay cake up a notch! :wink: Indydebi -- I use the "pin-prick" method to get an idea of where to write. I love calligraphy and "scrolly things" but being left-handed makes is necessary to use a guide. :D

Did you put the sparkles on before the icing crusted or after? I have a wedding shower cake to do next week, and I had planned to use the white cake sparkles from Wilton. Wasn't sure how to use them, cause I do the viva method to smooth out my icing. Thanks!

I"m very envious of your handwriting skill! Beautiful! My favorite part is how the vines roll out from the leaves.... they really add a fine point of decor outside of the standard flower-n-leaves. Good detail!

dustymorris -- I use the spinkles right after I have smoothed the cakes (Viva) and before it is completely dry. They will kind of soak into the cake if you do them the night before ... and you can always keep sprinkling them on! :D

prettypinkroses -- I used a tip 101. :) I have another pansy cake and I used a 104 ... I liked it better but my gardening sister liked the look of the 101. :? So, I guess you can choose a look!
