Dynamic Daisy Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It took a great deal of time to "fill in" the petals. Once that was done. The rest was fun and easy! I put the cake on a large board covered with foil. I also baked cookies in the same shape as the cake decorated them and placed them around the cake "gluing" them in place with a dab of buttercream, then added a large stem and leaves of fondant for the cake, and used buttercream to "glue" them onto the board, I also used buttercream for the cookie stems and leaves directly on the board. Using alphabet cookie cutters I made cookies spelling out "Happy Birthday, Beth" and decorated them with buttercream, and placed them at the top of the board (glueing them down with more buttercream). The birthday cake/cookies was a great success!
