Cake Decorating - Course 2

Course 2 was about flowers, flowers and more flowers with a few borders thrown in. We learned the rose bud, victorian rose, violet, apple blossom, daffodil, pansy, primrose, mum and daisy. We also started working with royal icing. I am excited about the royal icing for cookies and some cake decorations, but I made all these flowers out of buttercream.

These were all the flowers we needed for our final cake in course 2:

The white plastic pieces that the flowers are sitting on are called flower formers. You put the flowers in them when they are wet so that when they dry they have a more natural curved look.

The basket weave was surprisingly easy and it looks really cool when it's done. The bluebird was made out of royal icing.
