A spring or garden themed cake for a wedding shower or birthday party is easy to create even for beginner decorators. A few flower shaped cutters, premade rolled fondant in several colors and a great cake recipe are the basic tools required for this vibrant presentation.
A sour cream vanilla cake is a perfect backdrop for this whimsical cake. Follow the recipe and cool cakes completely before decorating and filling. Layer and ice the cakes with a simple vanilla buttercream. The sides do not have to be perfectly smooth because you will be pressing cut fondant flowers on the surface.
There are so many tools available for cake decorators these days and many are easy enough for beginner designers to use with spectacular results. Fondant cutters in all shapes and sizes can create simple flowers such as the daisies and leaves used in this pretty patterned cake.
