I'm calling on my expert cake makers out there for some help since you all have such good advice for me always! My son and his fiance would like this cake for their wedding, I am not real experienced at this so any help is appreciated. Is this 2 3inch high cakes layered for each tier? Is the stems painted on or edible marker? And any good tutorials on making these stargazer lillies? Is that black fondant border? I tried finding this on the site but not finding it to get any info. on it. Any helpful tips would be much appreciated!
I have used this one and it was really good:
Peanut Butter Icing:
How are you doing with your flowers?
thank you Goreti, I'll give that a try. I haven't had time to work on the flowers again and needed to get more stuff, hopefully soon!
still haven't gotten time to make another lily but she changed her mind and wants hibiscus now :)
LOL June...to me the hibiscus was the hardest flower I've made so far. Finally got a center that was (not great) acceptable. That is the hard part for me.
Here is my stargazer lily, has improved but certainly needs more improvement, messed it up with the dots and coloring. It still isn't tight enough in the center. I lightly steamed it but it was hardly noticeable, I tried spraying it with pam lol, that made it really shiny!
I think they're looking pretty good Wendy!
I made this recipe, going to use it on a cake for this weekend :) icing tastes good! Hopefully it will work well for decorating with borders too. :)
I have used this one and it was really good: Peanut Butter Icing:
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3 cup poweder sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp heavy cream (must)
InstructionsCream butter & peanut butter, add powder sugar, mix until combined & scrape the bowl, mix on high speed for a minute, then add the extract, mix, add heavy cream and mix on high speed for 3 min. done
Wendy, I think it looks lovely. Great job
Wendy, your lily looks good. I disagree that your spots ruined it, the color looks very natural. Huge improvement.
