Petal cake tutorial
This is my first time doing a tutorial, I hope you guys like and it find it helpful! Please let me know if you have any questions.
First, you will need some materials
- a ball tool
- foam pad
- rose petal cutter (or any oval/round petal cutter would work)
- veining mat
Roll out your fondant until very thin, about the same as you would do if making a flower
This is how thin I rolled mine out. If its too think it will be hard to frill the edges
Use the cutter to cut out as many petals as you can fit in your fondant
Use the veiner to vein each petal. This is optional but I liked the look and texture it gave
Place each petal on your foam mat to frill
Using the ball too, frill the edges of the petal. Just use a circular motion on the very edges and dont press too hard or it will tear.
Attach the petal to the cake, starting at the bottom and working your way around, then up. I attached it to buttercream so I didnt need any glue or water. If you are attaching to fondant, or your buttercream has already crusted, use a small dab of piping gel or water only to the top of the petal
Finished with all the petals
I used a mixture of petal dust and luster dust on the petals after they were attached to give depth and color to it. This was for a mermaid cake to resemble the tail so I wanted it to have a shimmery look.
The finished cake!
