Additional Information

Step 1

Make cake. Prepare batter following recipe directions. Bake and cool cake. Cake is three-layers. Trim one layer to 1 in. high for a 5 in. high tier. Place on foil-wrapped cake board, cut to fit.

Step 2

Decorate cake. Prepare buttercream icing following recipe directions. Tint three shades of green: light, medium and dark. Use spatula and medium green icing to ice cake smooth.

Use tip 366 and dark green icing to pipe shell-motion leaves, beginning at bottom border and then around cake. Move tip up 3/8 in. and use tip 366 and light green icing to pipe a row of shell-motion leaves, followed by a row of medium green icing shell-motion leaves. Repeat, alternating icing colors to pipe rows of shell-motion leaves and cover cake sides.

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.

A variety of leaves will help give your cakes a more realistic garden feel. Add piping gel to your icing to help keep your leaves from breaking.
