Royal Icing Drop Flowers and Basketweave Design

March 20, 2010 at 10:57 am 1 comment

This is a charming cake apt for the person I made it for.  I made this cake for the birthday of a lady who is such a kind, generous and thoughtful soul.  I work with her and I very much appreciate what she does for me and for the people around her.  She is a gem!

The drop flowers are made with royal icing, the cake is covered with buttercream and the basketweave on top of the cake is also buttercream icing.  I thought the basketweave would be a nice backdrop for the drop flowers.

Aside from white, I used 2 Wilton colors (violet and rose) but added two more shades — violet with a touch of rose and rose with a tinge of violet.

    Beautiful cake! This gives me some great ideas. I have learned to do the lattice work but my buttercream always breaks, what I mean is it looks rough.
