Buttercream with orange peony

Chocolate vodka cake with chocolate ganache and white chocolate swiss meringue buttercream. This cake went to a local auction raising money for the USCG’s “Santa to the Villages” program for the children in rural villages on Kodiak.

Beautiful! How on earth did you get the scalloped look? It’s gorgeous and so consistent!

Thank you! Just use that dot and smear back with a spatula technique but instead of one big dot, I did 5 small dots in a small “c” shape to mimic the peony petals.


For being the Fondant Flinger, you fling the buttercream around pretty darn great too!! Stunning!

OMGOODNESS THAT IS JUST SOOO PRETTY! I’m a huge fan of textured buttercream, but I gotta say, this is one of the NICEST one’s I’ve seen!! It might just very well be my MOST favorite!! What round tip would be used to accomplish this (size)? Thank u sooo much for sharing this picture!
