Cakes in Full Bloom

with Erin Gardner
Capture the allure of floral arrangements in bold cakes for any celebration. Create updated sugar flowers, foliage and three show-stopping cakes as you build fresh floral design skills.

Use modern design principles and cake artist Erin Gardner's smart techniques to create radiant, floral-inspired cakes. You'll make statement flowers like the open peony, honeycomb dahlia and trendy ranunculus, as well as fun fillers like billy balls, eucalyptus leaves and hellebore flowers. Then, decorate Erin's Confetti Cake, covering one tier with vibrant rainbow confetti and the other with an understated pattern of matte dots set against a shimmering background. Decorate the I Heart Cake with a top tier encrusted in gold sequins and a bottom tier of horizontal stripes with inset hearts. Bring the Monoglam Cake to life with a gilded topper, vertical stripes and a Swiss dot pattern of gilded bows. Complement enticing cake designs with vibrant sugar-flower arrangements that make an irresistible showpiece for any event.
