At Rest in the Field Cake

This gorgeous lamb cake rests in a field of multi-colored pansies. Use the Pansy technique and the Flower Former Set to grow your edible garden.


Difficulty: Medium


Step 1

In advance, use royal icing and tip 104 to make approximately 84 pansies (12 each: violet, rose, white, yellow, rose/white, yellow/white, violet/yellow) with tip 2 string loop centers. Make extras to allow for breakage and let dry on flower formers.

Step 2

Bake 1-layer 13 x 9 7/8 in. oval cake and lamb cake. (Use a firm recipe such as pound cake for lamb.)

Step 3

Ice oval cake smooth with spatula. Insert dowel rods in oval cake where lamb will be positioned. Place lamb on cake board cut to fit bottom of lamb; position lamb on oval cake.

Step 4

Ice lamb's face smooth with spatula. Cover lamb with tip 21 rosette fur. Pipe tip 3 dot and string facial features. Attach pansies to cake with dots of buttercream icing. Pipe tip 366 leaves.
