So, we found a cake we LOVED! And it actually looked doable – we have made several cakes in the past – increasing in difficulty as we go along. We knew it would taste great – cream cheese frosting, anyone?! But we needed it to LOOK just as fantastic. Here is our inspiration:
The idea is just colored white chocolate, spread into a sheet and applied to the frosted cake. We followed the tutorial with great success! The cake wrap worked just like they said it would!
Now the flowers – that was a different story. That takes a little more skill. Just trial and error, and make extra petals because I had several break. I used their knife method and created the “spiky” flower, then went rogue and used a spoon to create the round petals. We loved both and the contrast worked great. We added the candy pearls for extra color.
The cake was a hit! We were worried how the chocolate layer would cut being so firm, but it cut pretty easily. The cake really tasted great and went so quickly, we forgot to grab a photo of the cake itself. This is definitely a Pinterest win!
