I would have to give this cake idea a 5 star rating in that you cam make your very own idea from this little cake. I made this cake for my niece and her friends who were having a tea party.
My cake was a lemon citrus cake with lemon filling. The only thing different I did was to put little teacup pixie sticks in the center of the cake, as well as let the girls cut out teapots and placed them around the bottom edge. They loved it.
The sugar sheets were very easy to work with but you still have to take some care so they don't tare when applying them to the cake. The border cutter and punch were very slick and easy to use and is fast. Easy enough that the girls who are ages 6-9 had no problem using it. Great products and even greater ideas. Really look forward to seeing more from Wilton in the near future. Projects like this makes me want to do more..It was easy and the instructions were very easy to follow.
