Flower Garden Cake

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!!!!!

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?
