Stripes and flowers mini cake
I made this mini cake for a birthday. Since it's a six inch cake there wasn't much to decorate so I needed to keep the design simple.
That shouldn't be confused with quick, however. There are just about a hundred little gumpaste flowers on the top of the cake. While those were drying, I colored some fondant to cut into strips and attach to the side of the cake.
Then it was just a matter of adding frosting to the top to hold the flowers in place - it's a great, low pressure design since the flowers on top cover all of the stripe edges. It's no big deal if the strips are different lengths or widths.
