Pink and White Wedding Cake: Scrolling, buttercream, and gumpaste flowers

This is going to be short, sweet, and to the point because I am wiped out after all the baking this weekend.

This cake is almost entirely buttercream.  The top flowers and flower on the side are gumpaste.  All of the scrolling, piping, and similar is buttercream.

If you are not in the market for a five tier cake, the top three layers would make an equally adorable and very much still impressive smaller cake. 

We did the ribbon band around the second layer with the largest Wilton icing tip that is used for base icing.  By putting the cake on a turn table and resting your hand on the edge of the table where you are decorating, it is pretty simple to get it fairly straight.  I put a beaded trim of icing above and below it.

Here is a closer up view of the top couple of layers. The heart topper was just a hair wider than the top layer, which made a really adorable impact on the cake.

As stated in a previous post, those flowers on top are gumpaste and made around blow pops.  The smaller sticks of suckers were great to pop into a cake top, and the suckers saved me from having to waste a lot of gumpaste in a core.

The center of the decoration on the top layer is a white sixlet.

All in all we were very happy with the end product.

Happy crafting! Pin It Now!
