Petal Icing Technique


Ever since I saw an ombre petal cake on The Hungry Housewife I've been dying to have a go at this decorating technique.   

Decorating the cake does take some time but I think the end result makes it all worth it.   The perfectionist in me wishes the petals on my cake were more defined but the chocolate frosting I was working with was too soft.  Next time I'll let it stiffen up more or maybe use swiss meringue buttercream instead.

This yellow cake with chocolate frosting is dedicated to one of my dearest besties, Sirine, who is celebrating  her birthday today.  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCHOUNA!

  3. Hi Truc. You must be a true perfectionist, 'cause your cake looks perfect to me :). I've wanted to try Petal Icing Technique for quite some time myself. Can you please recommend a specific frosting recipe?
