This is my first shaped cake. It was difficult to figure out how to use the cupcake pan. I found the directions on the Wilton site. It would have helped if the instructions had included the size of the flowers in inches as I couldn't find the blossom cutter set. Over all I enjoyed making this cake and will make it again. I will make it on the weekend or when I can take more time. The cake will make a great impression at the party that I have planned.
