This 5-petal springtime flower, most commonly seen in white or soft pink, is virtually the same petal shape as the wild rose, but uses a smaller tip creating a petite flower. The dot stamen are typically positioned like the holes in a 5-hole button. Dry them on flower formers for a more natural look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this way of stacking and yet using tiers without a cake underneath. This is so lovely and inspirational. Flowers, bride/groom cake topper and a multitude of other decorations can be placed within the pillared bottom. This is a wonderful way to make flowers ahead so that decorating can be quickly done. The simple diamond pattern really adds to the femininity and helps to cut down on the stark brightness of the ribbon. It's such a fun cake and brings on the cake compliments.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This cake can be light medium to a hard medium...depending if you use pre-made flowers!!! I do suggest for a first timer of someone who does not make gumpaste flowers to just use silk... Then this cake is pretty darn easy and fun to do! The decorator can also wrap some pretty ribbon matching the flowers around the pillars for effect- or even put some small, tiny drop flowers on them-to break up some of the tallness of the white pillars- Anyway, Have fun!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I did a variation of this cake for a bridal shower. She wanted the cake on bottom and all the flowers on top, but she also still wanted the pillars. You can't argue with a bride! And it looked gorgeous! It was square cake and we made the lattice work extend all the way up the side instead of just a border. It was beautiful. There are so many ways to play around with this one!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from it's a beautiful, elegant cake, when we see the upper part of the cake it's simple, easy but consider about lower part (flowers) if it is natural flower it's more easy to arrange but if we use gum paste to make the flowers it's somewhat difficult. thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake mold and accessories can make ANYONE look like a pro. I used this set to make a 50th anniversary cake for my in-laws! They actually thought this cake was professionally made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning! This was my inspiration on the 18th birthday cake I created last January. The celebrant loved the cake as the "ballerina and red roses" theme was very personal and very close to her heart. I used Wilton's lighted "fanci fountain" with water coloured in Wilton's "no taste red" below the stacked tiers and used fresh flowers accented with tulle fabric on the tiers. Separating the top and the second layer, I inserted a crystal ballerina figure with the top tier supported by four 9" Wilton's Grecian spiked pillars surrounded by red fresh flowers. To create further impact, I glued the crystal ballerina on top of a battery-operated led lights illuminating from the bottom creating a ghost-like effect. And for finale, red roses petals were scattered around the fanci water fountain base and the cake table. To me that night was truly memorable. As a cake decorator, I find it really inspiring to create something beautiful and personal for the celebrant. This inspiration leads me to conceptualize and draw images on paper detailing the tools, materials, testing the non-edible effects, timelines, etc. The rest is imagination!
