Flower Garden Cake

I am so excited to be able to share this cake with you!

It was a birthday cake for someone really special. Some of her favorite colors are purple and gray, so I used that as my inspiration. 

I don’t know if you’re supposed to have a favorite cake, but this is definitely in the top 5.

I had so much fun playing with the frosting colors.

I used Wilton’s red-red, royal blue, and rose to make the shades of purple and blue. Moss green was used for the leaves. I also used a bit of black to get some grey.

You may notice that I pulled out a Russian piping tip for the purple flowers in the top left.

Then it was time for the fun part- the arranging!!

I LOVE how it turned out!!!!!

Purple and Gray Flower Cake

I also tried something new.

I used a small offset spatula to spackle some green on the sides. 

I love how it turned out. I think it suited the cake well and put the emphasis on the flowers.

I just kept taking pictures of it. 

Here’s another shot.

Ok, I think I’m done now. I just had so much fun with it!! It’s like gardening, but on a cake!

It was a homemade carrot cake with homemade cream cheese frosting. 

What do you think of it?

  1. I love youyour flower cake. It is my mum’s 70th in march and have been looking for ideas. Did you use royal icing to pipe or normal icing sugar? Would you have not just been able to pipe directly onto the cake?

    • Hi! It’s so nice of you to make a cake for her. I used American buttercream. By piping the flowers on squares of waxed paper and freezing them, you have more control over how the flowers look and on where they are placed. I’d love to know how it turns out!
