Episode 108: Easy Drop Flowers

When you think of cake decorating, flowers are the first design that comes to mind. Drop flowers are perfect for beginners yet elegant enough for the most experienced cake decorator. Fondant and flowers is a winning combination on our second feature cake. And last, smaller is easier and faster with petit fours featuring flowers.

Projects

Pretty In Pink Heart Cake

The warm tones of this cake will put everyone at the shower or brunch in a sunny disposition. Shapeable fondant makes it easy—with hand-cut flowers and a twisting rope border, anyone can do this.

Violet Cascade Cake

A rich emerald-iced cake works beautifully with bunches of softly-shaded violet blossoms. The drop flower technique is easy to master—pipe perfect flowers with a twist of the wrist.

Swirling Floral Cake

These simple swirl flowers are even easier because you make them in advance with royal icing. They’ll keep for weeks and will be ready to place on your freshly iced cake.

Petal Petit Fours

Poured icing is a terrific way to ice single-size cakes. Just place cakes on a cooling rack, pour the icing and let set—they dry to a smooth sheen.
