Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake for a baptism for a friend. I made the roses in pink & purple and I took out the scroll piping. It still looked very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to make and very pretty when done. Used pink roses and white icing for a first communion cake. Make roses with tube 126 and that size added a nice look for the cross cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter actually is the cake maker of the family. She is 16 and loves to bake. She loves Wilton products and recipes. She uses the buttercream icing all the time! :) She recently obtained this cross pan and couldn't wait to use it!! This appeared to be an easy cake to make and will be one of our favorites!
