So I've been teaching this technique for a while but never made a full cake using only this flower so i figured since I had some time off from my cake classes I would make a few cakes. I mixed blues and pinks of light and dark shades and then iced the sides with a basket weave.
This cake for was for my father in-law. I wanted to do pretty cake but using masculine colors. I used light and dark blue pansies and wild roses. I swirled the icing rather than iced the cake smooth.
I am hoping to make a few more cakes just for fun when the time allows. Hopefully it won't be too long before I pick up a decorating bag again! lol
Thank you for stopping by my blog and please leave comments. I love to hear your thoughts. Don't forget, make everyday beautiful!
