Rated 4 out of 5 by thesweetness from This cake uses cutouts. If you have never put fondant on a cake, this will be the hardest part of this cake. Practice and follow wiltons tips on how to apply fondant. You can also use buttercream if you prefer. Apply the cutouts with by applying a brush of water or vanilla to the back of the cut outs and place where you want them on the cake. You can experiment with different colors cut outs and different placement designs. I think the design in the picture is the best. This is a simple cake that is sure get more great feedback than a simple cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4Him from This cake design has great impact when topped with birthday candles. It is a great beginer project for those interested in fondant or for anyone hoping to involve a little one in the process. Two variations from the instructions: I used a dome pan (loved it) and instead of fondant balls around the base I rolled out a 1/2" strip of fondant the circumfrance of the cake and made a big fondant bow that went over the seam. This one is fun!

Rated 3 out of 5 by kellit from great for beginning! save some time - just pipe a bead border around the cake instead of rolling out fondant balls. i can never seem to get the fondant balls the exact shape and size and they are hard to attach without rolling all over the place. it is just easier to pipe a large bead border with buttercream (you could use a bigger tip like 4 or 5)

Rated 5 out of 5 by bmjanzen from I helped my younger brother make a variation on this cake and I was amazed at how easy it was, yet it still looked amazing! It was my first time using fondant, and the design of this cake allowed me to experiment with fondant, teach my brother how to use it as well, and have fun all at the same time! I will be making this cake again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cakegirl82 from This was a really easy cake for me. The flower cutouts are pretty simple. The most time comsuming part is rolling the fondant into little balls for the border along the bottom of the cake. But you can use almost almost any colors and even try the heart or circle cutouts and the cake will still look nice and professional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cookies Kitchen from I'd suggest this cake for anyones thats trying to dip their toes into using fondant. I did for my first time and had a blast! I used white fodant as my base and then dyed my flowers bright blue, yellow, orange, pink, ect and just had fun mixing the different sized flowers and colors.
