Hand Painted Cake + Easy Fondant Flower Tutorial

Every now and again I get in the mood to create a cake that is feminine, pretty and flirty.  These past few weeks in between cake orders I played around with this design and the result is a hand painted cake with a simple fondant flower that I absolutely adore. This hand-painted cake is nothing that I have ever seen before.  I believe was able to capture all three things in this cake.  As a result, I have prepared a tutorial on how to make a quick fondant flower using a rose cutter.  hand painted cake easy fondant flower

I know you are probably saying not another hand painted cake.

Well, why not? I enjoy making them and I believe you will too.  I have a small confession to make, once I settled on the design I actually woke up a little bit earlier than usual to paint this cake. The result far exceeded my expectation.  Because normally the design does not always translate as well as I would like.  This shows that the steps from my last tutorial how to create a hand painted cake can be replicated for any design.

Making the quick fondant flower

I love making edible flowers, but I don’t get to make them as often as I would like.  I was happy to make one because I felt like the hand painted cake while perfect needed a little something If you are not comfortable making flowers or have never made edible flowers before this is perfect for you.  It is super easy to make with no floral wires.  The flower is simple and stunning.

This flower can be made to match any design. For this cake, I made a white fondant flower with hints of pink to match the cake.  Make your flower as big and bold as you like.hand painted cake quick fondant Flower
