White Flower Cake Shoppe Signature flower - Page 7

post #91 of 103

I just wanted to let everyone know that I tried the Wilton 402 tip yesterday and could NOT get it to work!  I went back to the Ateco 403 tip (even though I had wanted smaller flowers) and it worked perfectly!  So anyone out there that's having trouble, maybe it's because you're using the Wilton tip (which doesn't seem to work very well) and/or your buttercream isn't stiff enough, it has to be pretty stiff.

JDelectables:  Your cake is gorgeous, wow!  Good job!  Those colours are amazing together!  What colours did you use?

 

Do they advise that you do the scrollwork first and then the flowers on the top, or the other way around?

I did the scrollwork first and then the flowers.  I use americolor gels.  for that cake, coral (mix between a few), turquoise, and white.

I have a tiny C shaped tip in my Wilton kit, but I couldn't get it to work. I used the legal tip, saw a video somewhere, maybe one of you posted it! Probably! It was like making a rosé, the onside down U. Tried it first with looser BC, it was literally flopping, so made a stiffer batch of American BC, and got this. It's definitely not the same, but I like it.

jdelectables - Your cake is beautiful. You mentioned that your one cake was after taking two of their classes. I looked online at their classes and it looks like the buttercream technique class is one day for only 1 hour and 15 minutes. Is that what you attended or was there a different one? Plus it says you get recipes. I'm wondering what you got recipes for. I live in Illinois and am wondering if it's worth a trip over there. Thanks so much. Your cakes look beautiful. Are you using a swiss meringue?

I'm going to order the Ateco "U" tubes numbers 79, 80, 81   and give these flowers a try.

Yes I took their buttercream class and the floral cupcakes class. I also practiced ALOT! I am not sure what recipes they are referring to as in neither of the classes did I get any recipes. They simply said their swiss meringue is similar to Martha Stewarts. However I would disagree with that as I believe white flower adds some shortening to theirs. Just my opinion. I use a version of a Swiss meringue that is from the Wilton site. I made some adjustments to it. The one I am referring is:

It is also on this site. Check out the book called "sensational buttercream" by Carey madden. It has some amazing flowers in there, some of which are similar to white flowers. Hope this info helps!

That book is awesome. She uses swiss meringue also. The frosting type is key!!

Thanks for the tip on that book. Sure beats having to drive 7 hours for the class!!!! Again, your cakes are beautiful and your practice has definitely paid off. Thanks again.

apparently tip Wilton 403 is much larger than Wilton  tip 402 and is too big for a coupler.

*sorry I tried to post a photo & it didn't work*
