In advance use tip 6 and Lemon Yellow icing to make 6 Shaggy Mums on vanilla wafers; make extras to allow for breakage and let dry.
Bake and cool 2-layer cake. Use spatula to ice top of cake white. Use icer tip 789 and pink buttercream icing to ice bottom layer of cake; repeat for top half of cake using green icing. Use tip 21 and yellow icing to pipe a shell border between green and pink sections on side. Attach Shaggy Mums to cake top with icing.
Speed up the decorating process with a few nifty tools. Use our Decorating Comb to create narrow or wide ridges in iced surfaces and a Decorator Dessert Pro® to apply icing in interesting ways and shapes.

this cake was very fun to make a little difficult being that i havent taken any classes yet..i just picked up on cake backing n decorating all on my own...its my passion now...i did learn that i had made my icing to thin on this cake so i thickened it up with some powdered sugar n it done perfectly then...i loved the colors of the icings as well...next time i do this cake i am going to change up the colors...

I have only recently started cake decorating. I made this cake for my neice and her family to take to a camp-out event. Lots of "OOO's" and "AHH's", I was told. I absolutely loved making the "shaggy mums". Easily done, and a whole lot of fun to do!

I learned how to create shaggy mums in a Wilton class along with other flowers, and these are so easy.
The cake is gorgeous with these colors, but can have different colors for different occasions.

Made this cake in the begging of my courses and it was a little hard to do but looks very pretty.
