At least 1 day ahead of time, using royal icing, make the following flowers: 7 Morning Glories using tips 103, 104, tip 1 lines, tip 2 dot centers on 1 5/8 in. lily nail; 12 Bluebells using tip 66 for petals and tip 2 for dot centers on 1 1/4 in. lily nail; 20 tip 131 peach drop flowers with tip 2 yellow dot centers and 15 tip 225 white drop flowers with tip 2 yellow dot centers. Let dry.
Tint fondant yellow; set aside 1/2 box of fondant for rope trim. Prepare and cover cake with rolled fondant; smooth with Easy-Glide Fondant Smoothers.
Roll remaining fondant into 1/4 in. diameter ropes.
Position cross rope on cake top; attach small balls of fondant at each end of rope.
Repeat same process for bottom border.
Attach flowers with royal icing; pipe tip 352 leaves.
Drop flowers are a great way to add flowers quickly. Pipe drop flowers in buttercream directly on your cake, or pipe in royal in advance and place your flowers anywhere. Flowers will be sharper in definition when piped in royal.
Truly a divine dessert! Our Cross Pan and Floral Collection Flower Making Set makes it easy to serve this stunning cross-shaped cake at Easter, christenings, First Communions, showers and any religious gathering.
