The Partiologist: Wafer Paper Flower Wreath Cake with Video!

Wafer Paper Flower Wreath Cake with Video!

Nothing says summer like a cake with flowers, right?  Okay, maybe a lot of things do, but it seems like everywhere I look, I see a summer wreath, filled with flowers.  And because I wanted to make wafer paper flowers, I decided it was time to take on the task.  I watched many you tube videos before deciding which flower to make for my cake.  I wanted pretty, but easy, and I think I found the answer.

Flower Wreath Cake

It turned out so pretty, didn't it?

I can say that can't I?

I'm the first to admit when something doesn't turn out and I'm also the first to admire when it does. 

Wafer Paper Flowers
Just look at those flowers!

Did you know you can eat them?  Not that I would, but I could!

Yes, they're made from wafer paper.

And Wilton Spray color!

And I've got a video showing you how.

Here are a few notes from the video:

To make the wafer paper flower, cut the paper in a spiral.

Spray the wafer paper with Wilton Color Mist Food Spray.

Paint the back of the wafer paper with clear Wilton piping gel.

Begin rolling the paper up, until you have your flower.

Use a leaf paper punch to punch out the petals.

Cut a slit in the petals and close together with water.

Bake a round cake and cut out the middle.

Frost the cake, then use a spatula to make the rustic pattern.

Pipe brown strings of frosting on top for the grapevine, using a round decorating tip.

Place the flowers and leaves on the cake.
