Rated 5 out of 5 by slhvirgo30 from I was asked by my girls to make this for them for there birthday. The time it took was over two days only cause i am a mom of 4, but using the Wiltons Chocolate and Wiltons pressmolds it went by fast and I was able to allow my children to help. Baking was easy it takes around 3 hours from start to finish. You have to allow for cooling or you will have melting and drooping. If you apply your icing its always good to use Wiltons Royal Icing as it sets up fast and keeps your cake fresh and the cupcakes really moist. The Pitcher was also easy to make also, I made it from Wiltons Chocolate and used the two sticks from the Flowered lollies to hold it in place on top of the cake. TIP**Also an idea that is in the book but not shown is the watering can if you use clear beading floss you can add drops of dangling imitation droplets by adding edible pearls or royal icing because it dries hard. Beading floss costs about a $1.25 and can be found in the jewelry making section of your local craft store. Easiness I would give this cake a 4 Star. Timliness I would give it a 3 star. But the looks on your childrens faces when you have finished is definitly a 5 star. Also for the fencing I used white chocolate and poured it out on to waxed paper and froze it. Stored it in a plastic tin and when i got to the party i used a drop of Royal icing to attach the fence so easy for set up 5 stars. Definitly impresses your guests and the children love the mixture of cupcakes and chocolate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cakeitup from I like to use the cupcake idea but use chocolate flower mold lollipops and the grass tip for a more 3d cupcake
