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.

The Shell is the most popular icing technique of all. It's the basis for many borders, fleurs de lis and more. Lift the tip only slightly when piping to avoid a bumpy look.

Flower Overflow Cake is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from If you want this cake to look like the picture, you are going to need more than one cake mix, or cake recipe. I did it with one recipe and it was about half as tall as this is in an 8 inch round.
