See how easily your drop flowers from the Decorating Basics Course can dress
up a simple iced cake! You can make them in royal icing in advance and place
them on the cake or use buttercream and air dry before positioning.
In advance: Make approximately 75 tip 2D white drop flowers in royal or buttercream icing with tip 3 blue dot centers. Make extras to allow for breakage and let dry.
Bake and cool 3-layer round cake (bake 2 layers 2 in. high and one layer 1 in. high for a 5 in. high cake). Ice smooth in buttercream. Attach rows of flowers on bottom and top borders. Divide area between in thirds and attach 2 additional rows of flowers.
Drop flowers are a great way to add flowers quickly. Pipe drop flowers in buttercream directly on your cake, or pipe in royal in advance and place your flowers anywhere. Flowers will be sharper in definition when piped in royal.
