The Petal Cake

Bad News: I missed my cake class last night due to a migraine (uggh)!

Good News: I had a crumb coated cake ready and waiting for me tonight to experiment on!

So enters The Petal Cake…I have seen this done on Pinterest many times and I have always loved it, so I thought I would give it a try. This is so simple and looks like it takes much more time than it really does.

I started by piping 5 equal dots vertically down the side of the cake. I took my beveled edge spatula and pushed each dot down and slightly forward. I continued all the way around the cake (yes it is actually that easy)!

To finish the top off I piped a ruffled border with a gold glitter heart in the center.

I have to say this is my favorite cake so far! I think I will try an Ombre’ version of this soon!
