Basic Decorating Techniques - Floral Wonder

Transferring Pattern to Your Cake

Use this pattern to decorate the fondant-covered cake. If using buttercream-iced cake instead, let icing set slightly.

Trace pattern onto parchment paper with a pencil or non-toxic marker, repeating as necessary. Position paper pattern gently on side of cake, secure lightly with sharp toothpicks. Outline pattern using sharp toothpicks along pattern lines to transfer a dotted outline of pattern onto cake. Remove toothpicks and paper pattern. Using round tip #3 and buttercream icing, connect dots by outlining.

Embellish designs further by adding dots. Add bead borders to tiers using a larger round tip (6, 7, or 8).
