In advance, make 100 apple blossoms using white royal icing, flower nail, and tip 101. Add tip 1 light Kelly Green royal icing dot centers. Let dry on small flower formers. Make extras to allow for breakage.
Bake and cool 2-layer cake. Ice smooth in light leaf green buttercream icing. Attach flowers on top and bottom borders and in center with dots of icing. Using white buttercream icing, pipe tip 3 curvy vine between flower lines. Add tip 1 dots and tip 352 pull out leaves.
Attach flowers on top of cake with dots of icing. Pipe tip 352 leaves.
Perfect for classic borders or cloudlike decorations, dots are a versatile technique that can be piped in a range of sizes. The dot technique can be used as a simple border for cakes and cookies, as well as for icing cupcakes or piping meringues.
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.

This is the tallest 2 layer cake I've ever seen. Why do the cakes in the pictures on here always look taller than what the directions would indicate?

I used this idea for my final cake in the Basics class. It turned out really beautiful. It was a great cake to do for a beginner as the apple blossoms are not diffucult to make. Thanks for the idea.
