Step 2

Ice smooth 2-layer cakes (two 1 1/2 in. layers to make 3 in. high cakes) and prepare for stacked construction. Lightly spray sides with Blue Color Mist to create a sky and clouds effect. Attach large and small blossoms around each tier with buttercream. Pipe tip 4 bead hearts in buttercream on cake sides. Attach butterflies with buttercream; insert butterfly on stick and attach a large blossom with buttercream. Attach small blossoms on top of cake. Pipe tip 352 leaves on blossoms and tip 233 pull-out grass bottom borders. Attach Decor-Edge™ to edge of stand, following package directions.
