Flowers have been an integral part of cake decoration for a very long time now. Be it roses, daisies or chrysanthemums, these beautiful flowers add a special touch to every celebration cake. As a child, I remember watching Cake Boss on television and being awestruck at the speed with which Chefs would pipe buttercream flowers on a cake. These flowers were so precise and beautiful, they just turned a plain Jane cake into a masterpiece.
Fast forward to many years later, and I still wish I could pipe buttercream flowers! There is something about these unique flowers that make them a timeless and classic cake decorating technique.
So you can imagine how excited I am to take the class this Saturday, April 15 with Red Seal Pastry Chef Lindsey. She’s hosting a buttercream flower piping class, where participants will learn the tricks to piping lifelike roses, daisies and chrysanthemums on delicious cupcakes. It will be a fun session of flower making with small bags of buttercream using various piping tips.
Tricky to master but addictive when perfected, this skill will stay with one for many birthdays and celebration cakes to come.
Join me this Saturday morning for the buttercream flowers class, we can create some beautiful and delicious designs together. We also get to take our decorated cupcakes home after the class. I can’t wait to see you then!
