The Partiologist: Daisy Cake with Fondant Petals!

Daisy Cake with Fondant Petals!

Seriously, you must be thinking... will this Daisy Party ever end?  Soon I promise, but not until I show you how to make this Daisy Cake, it's one of the easiest cakes I've ever made.  If you can bake a cake and cut out fondant, you'll have it made in no time.  I promise. 

Daisy Cake with Fondant Petals!

The center of the daisy is the cake with simple fondant petals around the outside.

Thanks to Lindy Smith, this cake has become one of my favorites to recreate!

And you can make the fondant petals ahead of time.

In fact, you must make the fondant petals ahead of time so they can dry.

Here's a little how to~

The pan I used has rounded edges, but any round pan would use.

Add a Wilton flower nail to the center of the pan to help bake the cake evenly.

Remove the cake from the oven, invert and remove flower nail.

A day (week, or month) before frosting the cake, make the fondant petals.

I've included a petal template for you to make your own cookie cutter HERE.

Roll and cut white fondant petals, making sure you have enough to go around your cake.

Dust a flower former with powdered sugar and lay the fondant petals to dry.

Frost the cake and add sprinkles to the middle.

Add the petals around the outside of cake before serving.
