Rated 5 out of 5 by MelissaMc from Since this was my 3rd cake that I've ever made, I rated medium. It took me probably 12 hours total to make. But I'm getting better. The fondant was perfect by the 3rd try, (but because I had to pull it off 3 times, pulling off a little buttercream each time, then having to add more powdered sugar to stiffen it up again, it tasted 1000x better than any fondant I've ever eaten before). The daisy's would have been so much quicker to make if the cutters that came in the Wilton set made clean cuts. I had to clean up almost every one and tried so many different ways of cutting them. And with roughly 25 daisy's, that's 50 cuts. The technique that worked best was to use half and half gum paste / fondant. And to use lots of powdered sugar under, and have a little mat with Crisco spread on it. Then rub the cutter in crisco then make the cut. Make it so you can flip it over and press the gum paste / fondant mixture down into the mold, this really helped make cleaner edges, less trimming away flaws. Also, I had a hard time matching the orange color butter cream to the fondant. So I used a gum paste / fondant mix with in a bead border. The color matched perfectly. Everyone LOVED the cake. I'm sure if I was a little more experienced it would have taken a lot less time. But in the end it was worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bnoonan2395 from I'm a teenager and I found it quite simple! I didn't get the yellow sprinkles so I used pink, but other than that mine looks pretty much like the picture!! I defiantly recommend getting all the ready to use stuff. I tried to save a few bucks and get the mixes. Big mistake. It takes so much time and gets really messy. Next time the recipe calls for ready to use, that's what I'll get.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TamraB from This cake would be nice for a spring ladies Luncheon. the daisies could also be layed flat or even pressed into the fondant when rolled for the more experienced fondant person. I think it would be lovely this Easter with pale purple instead of the orange.

Rated 5 out of 5 by aardvark from I enjoyed making this cake...I had a hard time making the fondant the right color. I used the neon orange but thought that was to bright. I put in some bronze icing color but that made it a strange pinky color. I called my Wilton instructor and she suggested I add some yellow which brought it to the right color. I made only six daises and arranged them on the top of the cake. I then put dots on the cake with a number 3 tip. This was time consuming and I suggest going very slowly to get the right placement and to do the dots so they don't have the tail on them. stop adding pressure before you bring the tip away from the dot.. I did a border with the orange fondant that I used the ball tool to make indentations. I enjoyed making this cake..I love the color and the daisies were very perky. I will make this cake again.
