Bouquet Of Flowers Cake Topper For Mum

« Back to news categories

.

This sweet bouquet cake decoration can be created in advance on an icing covered plaque or decorated straight onto an iced cake, cupcakes or even cookies. Use ready-made sugar blossoms or cut out your own using blossom plunger cutters and coloured sugarpaste. For the cake we used Sattina golden delight cake mix which is deliciously moist and super quick and easy as you just mix with water and bake! This topper can be adapted for any favourite family member or friend and is a great project to get the children involved with so why not have a go!

Step 1.  Painting the stems.

.

The stems of the flowers look a little more realistic if you use two different greens. We used the Sugarflair foliage green and lime green blossom tint powders mixed with a little rejuvenator spirit to create paints: you can use water but once painted it takes a little longer to dry. With a fine brush, paint with one colour crossing the stems about a third of the way up, then paint using the second colour.

Step 2.  Adding the flowers.

.

.

Before you attach the blossoms, dip a fine tipped paint brush into some edible glue and paint small oval shapes over the stems and a few at the end of a couple of stems. Carefully attach edible white mini pearls to the glue and brush any ‘stragglers’ away! Attach a variety of different colours and sizes of blossom with a dab of edible glue and finish with a satin bow where the flower stems cross over.

Step 3.  Adding the wording.

.

.

The easiest way to add ‘MUM’ is to cut the letters out using push easy alphabet plunger cutters. Simply roll out a little sugarpaste in a matching colour to the flowers, press the letters onto the icing then push down the plunger to release the letter. Attach to the cake with edible glue and finish with a pretty ribbon around the side tied with a bow.
