Sprays of Color Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I followed the instructions word by word and the result was great. I did the "sprays of color cake" on mother's day and my mother in law liked it very much & appreciated it because the cake was done for her. All her neighbors liked it also. It's not difficult but it takes time. I was very happy !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did my own little twist on this cake. I used round cake pans & tiered it with pillars for more height. I also covered the cakes with fondant rather than buttercream. I put 5 flower pots on the bottom in order to make it not look so cluttered. It turned out really well & was definitely a hit with my customer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great use for the petal pan! You can make the flowers ahead of time to save you decorating time on the day of your event. I used candy melts to attach the flowers to the wires and that worked great. I did not use the flower spikes, but placed the wired directly into the cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cake was a huge hit at my sons school. 3 weeks later I still have people complimenting the cake. My difficulty lvl of medium, may not be accurate for more people. I am not much above the beginner skill level.
