Fantasy Flower Tutorial|(s) »
InstructionsI learned the fantasy flower technique used on the wedding cake at mycakeschool.com. I highly recommend a membership there :) With the basics in hand, I am now able to build on those skills to create my own "fantasy flowers".
Category: Cake Decorating
Type of item: Food
Style: Whimsical, Retro / Vintage, Formal / Bridal
Fondant, gumpaste, cake, buttercream, ganache
What was your inspiration?
The ruffly flowers so prominent in fashion!
What are you most proud of?
The bride's reaction:)
She loved it!! And that fact that she commented that not only was it beautiful, but it tasted amazing!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Square cakes are tough. Allow yourself plenty of time to get your "base" as sharp as you can before you attempt to cover it with fondant. Ganache is a great medium for this as it "dries" to a finish, however you can achieve the look with well chilled buttercream:)
