Author Neetha Syam

Ingredients

For the cake:

  • 2 double barrel cakes 20cm and 10cm

To decorate:

  • Wilton gel colours

  • piping bag
  • scissors
  • Wilton Nozzles: 252, 104, 103

Instructions

  1. Cover and stack both cakes with pink buttercream, as pictured.




  2. Piping blooms: Position the nozzle at a 30-degree angle, applying gentle pressure, then moving up an inch in a wavy motion to form a wavy petal. Apply the same technique backwards along the length of the piped petal to form a leaf-shaped petal, then pipe 5 more petals around it. Finish off by adding little dots using purple, red buttercream and white buttercream. (Fig. A - E)

  3. Using Wilton 104 and 103 nozzles, pipe a variety of different sized 7-petal, 5-petal, 3-petal and 2-petal blooms in a slanting pattern along the length of the cake.

  4. Leaves: Using Wilton 104 and 103 nozzles, pipe a variety of different sized 7-petal, 5-petal, 3-petal and 2-petal blooms in a slanting pattern along the length of the cake. (Fig. 'leaves')

  5. Textures: Add dragees, stems and dots using piping bags with small holes cut at the end using a variety of coloured buttercream. (Fig. 'textures')

  6. You can also add edible golden sprinkles/ glitter in the middle of the blooms and in between the textures.

  7. Pipe a row of simple petals around the bottom edge of the cake to finish.
