Ballerina cake

Vanilla cake decorated in buttercream icing with fondant/gumpaste decorations. Ballet shoes made out of gumpaste.

what tip did you use for the “petal” effect on the sides of the cake? i love the look of that but cant seem to replicate it.

Hello! It’s actually a Wilton #12 tip! You pipe a dot and then smooth it out in an upwards motion with your icing spatula to get the petal effect. I started at the bottom of the cake and worked my way around and to the top of the cake. Hope this helps!
