Project Instructions

Step: 1

Use gum paste mix, tinted royal blue/violet combination, and floral ejector set to make 13 flowers for each mini cake. Make extras to allow for breakage and let dry. When dry, pipe tip 2 dot centers in buttercream. Let dry.

Step: 2

Bake and cool 1 each standard and mini cupcakes (without baking cups) for each mini cake. Line jelly roll pan with parchment paper; position cooling grid on top of parchment paper. Place cupcake and mini cupcake upside down on rack. Heat ready-to-use icing in can to pourable consistency. Pour icing over cupcakes; gently tap grid to evenly distribute icing. Carefully remove cakes with spatula and place on parchment-lined jelly roll pan to dry.

Step: 3

When icing is firm to touch, stack mini cupcake on top of standard cupcake. Pipe tip 2 vines on cake tops and sides. Pipe tip 2 bead bottom border around base of cupcake. Position drop flowers on cakes; add tip 349 leaves. Pipe tip 352 leaf bottom border.


This cake combination serves 116. The top tier of a wedding cake is often saved for the first anniversary, so this number of servings does not include the top tier.
