Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made a version of this cake for my friends mom for her birthday. It didnt come out the way I wanted it too, but it was 2am and at that time my son was 7 months old and still not sleeping through the night lol Once I got the hang of the Calla Lilies they were pretty easy to make. Im not by any means an expert, I have taught myself everything and learned to make marshmello fondant which is all I work with. Im not good at all with the tips and bags lol Here is a link gto see the picture of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake in my wilton fondant and gumpaste class. I used leaves instead of the circle cut outs. I also diid not place as many calla lillies on my cake. The final result was a pretty cake, but I should have used more calla lilies on the cake like the picture shows. I always thought fondant and gum paste was difficult to work with, but it is not. It is alot of fun and your cakes look clean and neat. If you have never used fondant, I would suggest the class as it is fun and easy to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake is beautiful! My mother in law really loves Calla Lilies and I made this for her for Mother's Day and she went crazy over it. It's very easy to do but it takes a lot of time to make so many calla lilies, I changed the bottom color to pink and it looked gorgeous! A suggestion I can give you is to make the flowers beforehand, that way you cut the labor in half.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On this cake I made ny cala lilies with the cone ahead of time the cake itself was very simple and made the bottom lace with tip #70 I sort of stood up some lilies by attatching the round toothpicks at the bottom of the lilly. My cake was in a bright blue with the white calla lillies. My topping was a fondantcoveriing. it was so pretty. I made a 10 inch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love working with Calla Lilies. They are so simple to make! I made a cake similar to this one except it was 3 tiers. Turned out beautiful! I recommend placing your Calla Lilies together in the design you want before allowing them to harden completely. They lay much nicer. I also love to add pearl luster dust to them to give them a little pop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made a cake that looked very similar to this for my best friend's bridal shower! The cake came out beautifully and it was somewhat easy to do, just a little time consuming to make all the flowers! But nonetheless it worked very well, and the lilies are so lifelike! She loved the cake and it was a great bridal shower!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this idea because the Call Lilies are so fun to make. I create an assembly line process for making multiple flowers. They dry fairly quickly so I can make and use them the same day. Sometimes I change the colors to add variety to the cake. I would love to win this collection of Wilton tools!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looking at this cake it looks extremely difficult, however the calla lilies are quite easy to make--just give yourself plenty of time to make all that's required and the necessary drying time. Once that step is done, the cake goes together quickly. This cake is quite elegant when finished!
