A frosted cake.
How to make your sunflower cake.
Before starting to decorate your cake, use your circle cookie cutter to make a slight impression on your cake where you want your sunflowers to be. This step helps you plan out the way you want your cake to look before starting the actual decorating. Be sure to give enough room between each flower for the petals and vines.
Next, place your piping tip into your piping bag and fill with yellow buttercream.
Following the outline of your circle, start making your sunflower petals. Begin by squeezing your piping bag on the surface of the cake and as you lift up release your pressure.
Repeat this 2-3 times around each circle.
After getting all of your sunflowers piped it’s time to add the centers. Place your grass piping tip into you piping bag and fill with dark brown buttercream.
Begin filling in the center of each flower.
Now that your sunflowers are complete it’s time to add the vines and leaves. I used a piping bag with the very tip cut off for the vines. You can do the same or use a #3 piping tip. Fill your bag with green icing and begin connecting each flower with vines.
After the vines you can add leaves. You can do this by cutting a V into the end of your piping bag or by using a leaf piping tip.
And you’re sunflower cake is complete!
