I thought about what I’d like my cake to look like and came up with this design. I bought the ribbon first and worked from there. I loved the burgundy color and had to go to a few Michael’s to find gel color to match. The gels are used to color icing, fondant and gumpaste. We use gels as food coloring is liquid and would change the consistency of the icing.
- pipe the vines free hand and have them going up from the bottom cake connecting to the top
- add more detail around the buds, either making them bigger or adding petals or something
