Ombre Daisy Cake

It’s a big weekend of birthdays coming up (mine included!) and tonight I’m celebrating with some of my girlfriends, one of whom missed out on on her 30th last year because she was pregnant. So… I decided to make her a belated 30th cake.

Continuing with my ombre obsession, I made her an ombre birthday cake using my daisy cutter. Sadly, the inside isn’t ombre – it’s been a busy week with sick children, so I ran out of time..

I baked and covered my cakes with white fondant (the cakes are actually tiny cakes – the bottom tier being 4″), and then rolled out some white fondant (that I mixed with tylo/tylose powder) and started cutting out my daisies.

Using my bone tool, I then gently rolled it on each petal, creating a small indent.

Next up I made a ball of the strongest yellow shade for the cake.

I then divided my white fondant into 4 evenly sized balls, before taking a small bit of yellow fondant to create the different yellow shades. The amount of yellow you add to each white fondant ball obviously increases in size to get the various shades.

Make the rest of your daisies and allow to harden overnight.

Once you have stacked and iced your cake, start sticking the daisies on using water or edible glue – and no need to worry about the finish of your fondant because you’ll be covering it all with the daisies.

And that is it!! A simple yet stylish cake 🙂

    This cake is a simple concept, yet it looks very pretty. You’ve done a great job with the shades of yellow. Wish you a happy birthday with many many more to come 🙂
