Hello friends and happy Friday!
Today´s post is more than anything, me sharing a cute design for a cake. This was the first time for me making a cake, with buttercream as a final coat and lets just say I respect cake artists who make the final coat with buttercream a lot more, not that I didn’t before that, but now I realize how much more goes into that. Practice is crucial if wanted to perfecto surface…and a cake turntable is a great helper for the process.
The inspiration came from these two girls I watch on YouTube with these tremendously cute daisy sweaters.
I am plan on recreating the same concept on nail art and cookies, so come back for those.
Tools and recipes used for this cake:
- Vanilla cake recipe (original recipe from Glorious Threats)
- Filling (I chose mil caramel and chopped nuts)
- Daisy template (DIY in the video)
- Buttercream Recipe
- Cake knife
- Cake Icing Smoother
- I used whip cream on the top, from a box.
- Yellow gel food coloring
- Green gel food coloring
- 2 Ziploc bags
- Piping bag and piping tip # 352
- Tiny paper doilies. Like these ones.
- Turn table
- Cake leveler
See how I did mine, considering I am still a beginner of course:
I hope you enjoyed watching as much as I did making it. This isn’t a tutorial, more so I could share the idea.
The cake was delicious by the way!
Let me know about your experiences with first cakes. It´s definitely an experience and it was easier said than done! Lets keep on practice.-
