Simple Elegance

I made this cake for my cousin who was turning 16. She wanted something simple but elegant and decided to go with a two tiered cake, adorned with a yellow peony flower on the side.
The flower was made using self made petal cutters, as I wasn’t about to go and spend 50$ on the set of the peony cutters. It did take quite some time to shape each petal and then dry it and put the whole thing together, but I was rather pleased with the result.



I did not find any videos on how to make the peony cutters (like I did), but I did find a videos on how to make a similarly shaped peony flower. It’s 4 videos, for 4 stages.


Happy Pinning!

  • Hi Oksana!
    This cake had many and many layers of “Markiza” cake (I have the recipe here on the blog). I do not remember how many layers it was, or what the size of this cake was, since it was a long time ago. But it was covered in a cream made with heavy cream and powdered sugar.
    Hope this helps.
    Thanks for visiting and I appreciate your lovely comment 🙂
