Calla Lily Birthday Cake

I made this cake for my dear friend's birthday. My first gumpaste calla lilies. I got the idea from sweetpassion' wonderful cakes! Six inch Chocolate Cake with Caramel filling.

They are nice, did you have a mold? or did you free hand?

mvucic Says... 9 years ago

I rolled gumpaste out very thin, then used a heart shaped cookie cutter. There are actual calla lily cutters available, but I don't have one... yet!... so I had to improvise! Thanks :)

absolutely beautiful--what is the center yellow out of?? gumpaste too???

mvucic Says... 9 years ago

Yes. It's basically a gumpaste log on a wire. I then brushed on a mixture of meringue powder and water (equal amounts) to glue on the cornmeal, Thanks for all of your comments!

Great lilies. Do you mind sharing your technique? Puddiwop@yahoo.com

Awesome! Tell me about the fondant, do you just lay different colours beside each other & roll them out together?

Krise Says... 9 years ago

great job!!!!

mvucic Says... 9 years ago

Yes. That's what I did with the fondant. Although, I think making thinner stripes of the colors would have looked nicer. At some points, the stripes started separating, you can see it between the yellow pink, so I wonder if moistening the fondant slightly would have helped. Take a look at sweetpassion's cake. It's simply stunning! :)
