Rated 4 out of 5 by Sherilyn from I made this for a wedding shower. The bride was a big fan of fuchsia so I changed the background color to something near fuchsia and then used fuchsia, a middle shade of pink, and white for the drop flowers. I left off the candles and changed the words to "I do." It was bright but beautiful. It was great that I could make all the flowers ahead of time and then just place them on the cake. It made it easy to decorate the day of and yet looked special. The royal flowers last forever so any extras I could just tuck away in case I needed them for something else later. I'd definitely use this idea again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by katelyn's cakes from I used all the Wilton methods for this cake. It was easy to do the drop flowers as long as you followed what it said in the book. I learned not to use cream cheese icing for the drop flowers because they melt really easily. You do not have to have it perfect because whenever you are done it will not be noticeable. I had to learn that myself.
