How to Make This Giant Flower

Dream Cake.jpg 20k .jpg file

 

 

Attached is a picture of my dream wedding cake. My fiance has already said that I'm not allowed to make our wedding cake (fair enough - it's a stressful job!). We are thinking of ordering several flavours of cupcakes instead of having a cake. But I still find myself thinking of this dream cake....

 

Do you think that I could make this giant flower out of gumpaste well in advance and put it on a fake cake just for the display? Does anyone have any recommendations on technique and/or materials, etc.?

 

Thank you very much.

Someone just started a thread about that cake a few days ago - try searching "ruffle flower cake".  I think that was the heading.

Yes, you surely can make that cake and keep it for your wedding day. It is shown on lots of sites. I think kara butin(google that) and her blog will come up and she is showing it also. hth

Yes, Melissa that's how I got the link to show how to make the rose on the side of the cake.  I am dying to make one now.

I actually made this cake for a bride and I used individual large petals. It was so simple once I made the petals! I used royal icing to attach the petals.
