My first Petal Cake

I usually run far,far away from decorating with buttercream lol,lol. But I’ve been seeing all the pretty pics posted of these Petal cakes and decided to give it a go :) Flower centers were made from molds and fondant. Cake is Red Velvet, filled with Vanilla Nut Creamcheese—Petal look was created with crusting creamcheese frosting. Thanks for looking..

This is the kind of design I like very much. Simple, only 2 colors used – but perfectly combined.
Great job!

Chrissy ...

I love it!! Which tip did you use?? I might have to use your cake as inspiration if you don’t mind!!

Cakes By Julie ...

Thanks Chrissy. I used a #10 tip—couldn’t find a 12 :) Can’t wait to see yours, this was such a fun cake to make.

Chrissy ...

Great, thank you!! And did you use a spatula to smear each one?? I saw that on a tutorial… Or did you make each petal differently? Also did you use gum paste for your beautiful flowers???:)

Cakes By Julie ...

Yes I used a small Wilton spatula. Make sure you start at the back (center) of your cake so you can close it up nicely. Flowers were made from fondant with Tylose mixed in I made them a couple days ahead so they could firm up.

Great, thank you! I really appreciate it!!!!:)
