Floral Flair Cake is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from this cake was so beautiful and fun to make. I made this cake as my final cake in my Wilton Cake Decorating Basics class and it turned out beautifully. The only issue I had and it may have been because I am just starting out, is that my cake was only tall enough to get three layers of flowers instead of four. But I enjoyed it and everyone was impressed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is a really beautiful cake and everyone was shocked that after one course I was able to make such a beautiful cake. I did have problems with my drop flowers breaking and had to pipe them directly onto the cake. But I love it and will definitely do it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you want to do buttercream (very often I find people don't like to eat Royal Icing flowers because they're so hard), you can freeze them! I do the drop flowers on waxed paper, then cut them apart later. It's a quick and easy cake.
