I Learned / Embroidered flowers and Lace

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake All decorations are piped buttercream. I used an artist brush to give the flowers the embroidered effect. What are you most proud of? The piping and brush embroidery on this cake took many hours but I think it was worth the effort. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Joshua's Modern Piping class is great and offers many tips and much knowledge!

Q&A with C Brock

macdonaldb asked:
Did you make the flowers???? The colors are beautiful as are the flowers.
C Brock answered:
The flowers are silk. The bride and groom were on a tight budget so they did not want me to make flowers for them.
CakeBakerMoney asked:
Stunning. Was the piping freehand? The flower insignia are gorgeous
C Brock answered:
I used piping gel to outline the flower pattern to give me an outline to go by. After the design was transferred onto the cake I piped with buttercream.
Becki-Sue asked:
Truely Amazing Cake- love everything about it! Are the purple flowers real or sugar?
C Brock answered:
Thanks so much! The purple flowers are real.
