Fall Cake Design Idea-Piping Buttercream Mums


I’m Lorelie and welcome to wedding cakes
for you cake tutorials. In this video I will show you how to pipe buttercream
mums my way show you how to place them on your cake and how you might go about
designing your own fall cake. Now before we get started make sure you subscribe
to my channel and click the little bell so you’ll be notified every time I
upload a new video. First think about your color scheme after looking at some
garden flowers and leaves I decided on a dusty rose, earthy goldenrod, and brown
green leaves with a touch of red and yellow striped in. Make all your colors
first and have them ready to go. I will have details at my website on the color
combinations that I created here and a list of the tips that I used. A dark
background makes the colors pop. Chocolate ganache is the perfect medium
for this. For a rustic, earthy look use a semi naked cake and a drip. You will need
a flower nail and squares of wax paper to pipe the mums on to. Using a dot of
icing to hold the square in place while you pipe. Begin with a mound of icing
using a round tip. This will be covered so it doesn’t really matter what color
that you use. for the petals use the number 81 Wilton
start by holding your bag at about a 45 degree angle, press the tip onto the
mound at the base and squeeze and pull as you create a cup at the tip. You create the cup at the tip by pulling up
slightly and then releasing the pressure on the bag. Position the petals for the next layer
in between the petals underneath. Each layer is slightly shorter and as
you get to the final layers the bag angle changes to more of a 90-degree
angle. I used a peach color for the center. This flower is yet another way to
create the closed petal center. This time start with the center by piping from the
base up until you have created a fairly full bud. Now pipe the petals around the
centerpiece. I am using Italian meringue buttercream. If you want to make the first row a
little bit stronger and fuller, double up on the petals like I did on this one. Carefully place your flowers onto a
cookie sheet and put them in the freezer. If you would like to see and learn
piping skills stay tuned as I’m filming a buttercream piping series for you
which will be available at Wedding Cakes For You .com I’m going to let the music roll
and let you enjoy watching the cake come together. Thank you so much for being
here and I appreciate your views comments and likes very much. Stay to the end to see how to place the Mums. The Mums are firm so you can carefully
peel the wax paper off and place them onto your cake.
They will look a little more realistic if you overlap them slightly. Use a mound
of fresh buttercream to stick the moms to your cake. Fill in around the flowers
with more greenery. The final flower is the smaller mum which is placed on the
side and bottom of the cake. I’d like to take just a minute to
introduce you to my new book Wedding Cakes with Lorelie Step-by-Step. I’ve had
the book at the website as an e-book for years and people love it,
but they were asking for a real book so I made a real book and it’s at Amazon. So
this little book has all my best recipes right here at your fingertips.
It also has directions, step by step, how to make a wedding cake or any kind of
tiered cake. One of the great things that comes with my books is a membership to
Lorelie’s Cake Crew on Facebook. So see you soon I hope to see in the crew
