Pink topsy-turvy birthday cake

We created this super pink cake and adorned it with ombré pink and white roses for a fun birthday party. Ombré is still a popular trend when it comes to cake decorating plus it creates a fabulous look when creating sugar roses. We love how the brighter and bolder pink in these roses is given depth and dimension just by playing with the color of the petals!

If you’re a novice to cake design or want to create a more modern styled cake then edible wafer paper is absolutely perfect! You can play with cutting, tearing or curling petals to achieve some brilliant textures and styles. We love the addition of the polka dot print wafer paper in the design above which adds such a wonderful sense of fun; perfect for a more carefree party or wedding reception!

Adding hand made sugar roses to adorn the tops of cupcakes or even mini cakes would certainly make quite an impact. We love the idea of large open blooms perched atop of a smaller cake as we think this would look rather playful and romantic.

Gold leaf and rosette frill cake

You can add a more subtle yet wonderfully textural rose design to your next cake project with the use of delicate fondant frills like the gorgeous cake above. We love the fashion-influenced technique of the ruffled second tier and we think that this would be perfect for more modern designs.
