Beautiful. You make it look so easy.

Jennifer Nixon

Oh, wow. I loved this the other day, but I super love it now! You make it look so easy! Thank you. :)


WOW! That looks amazing. Thanks for sharing this tutorial!

Jessica @ How Sweet

This doesn't look as hard as I originally thought. Maybe I will get some guts and give it a try. So pretty.

Amber | Bluebonnets & Brownies

Wonderful tutorial, Amanda! Now I need to get that tip. Or 3 of them!

Julie @ Willow Bird Baking

Beautiful! Thank you for sharing your process!




Could you make it look anymore easier. So So talented!! I know for FACT that if I attempted to make this amazing cake, I would end up with something that is so entirely different it would be considered for Cake Wrecks!!


I'm so glad you put up the tutorial. I will try to make it even though I'm not great at frosting cakes. Your so talented! I wish I was you!


Thank you, Amanda, for the tutorial. I can't believe you found time to get it done so quickly.


this is why you are my favorite baker! can't wait to try it!



Every. Single. Time...You - AMAZE!!! Me!
I can barely bake my way out of a wet paper bag - but you inspire me to try!

This cake is absolutely beatiful. I liked it sooo much I shared it on my blog for my weekly "What I'm liking a Latte" http://alattewithotta.blogspot.com/2011/03/what-im-liking-latte-this-week.html
Thanks for the tutorial. It gives a cake icer like me (with two left hands) hope that I could give this a try.


I'm loving this cake. So need to make it! Well well done. So so feminine and girly.


Thanks for sharing your technique!


This may be a really stupid question, but can you literally bake a cake in a bowl and it will turn out the same as baking it in a round cake pan?

Lucy @ The Sweet Touch

I haven't tried flowers since back in my Wilton class days. This is on my list for the next celebration we have!! So pretty and I love that the undercoat doesn't have to be perfect!

Blog is the New Black

Absolutely gorgeous!!!!!


This cake is so pretty! Yet another one that I will have to try!!

Danee Kaplan

gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. I moved back to MIchigan after living in NC for 9 years and although I'm not a southern girl, I did LOVE the springs so when I looked at the house in Michigan with a beautiful purple hydrangea out front- you see I didn't know you could even grow them in MI- I joked that this is why I bought the the house but it may have been more true than not. I wanted hydrangeas as my wedding flowers but had to get married in July (husband was heading to NC to fly the F-15E - the jet that crashed in Lybia yesterday) and we had like 2 weeks off between military gigs and you just don't request more time off when you are heading to a military training. I

'm thrilled you made the cake, put it up and gave us a tutorial. Merci'


This cake is so elegant looking and would be perfect for dessert after a tea party. Thank you for sharing! :)

Cookbook Queen

Gorgeous, as always. The shape of the cake really sets it apart and makes it pop. You have the best ideas :)


can't i just come over? in exchange for an on site tutorial, I will take care of the new yummy peson that is about to enter your life and you and your husband can have a night off?


I am in awe of your abilities! I just love coming to your blog to be inspired.


I love this! And your rose cake tutorial which I have used. I want to try this with cupcakes, maybe turn them upside down and decorate the outside of them. Can't wait!


What are you doing to me woman!! I want to make the first flower inspired cake... and have finally found a reason to make it.... and now you give us this temptation!! is it really sad to make your own Mother Day cake? my mum lives in Australia... and I just dont think customs would let it through... they will have eaten it instead!!!

Kelly @ JAX does design

This may not be the most difficult-to-make cake you've shared, but out of all your amazing creations, this one is my very favourite :-) Blue hydrangeas are my absolute most favourite flower, and the way you've recreated hydrangeas with icing is just amazing :-) LOVE IT!


Great job on the Cake Amanda! Will definitely try this one out.

I did give you my info for the cookie donations. If you still need help especially for Bakerella just let me know!

Thank you for sharing how you made those perfect petals! Off to search through my drawer of tips.... :)


I'm hoping to decorate my mom's birthday cake this way but I'm still not really understanding how you made the petals. Is each petal a little ruffle? And you make 4 little ruffles for one flower? My roommate and I made your ruffle Christmas tree cake and the ruffles for that were super easy. Thanks!


Your hydrangea cake is positively GORGEOUS!

Jessica N.

This is one of the prettiest cakes I have ever seen!!! Love it!


Well, I could try. But it sure isn't going to look like this!!


Thank you Amanda for posting this tutorial! I'm absolutely in love with your cake and can't wait to try and make it for my Mum for her birthday and/or Mothers day (her birthday is May 2nd, and Mothers day is the 2nd Sunday in May in Australia - is it the same elsewhere?) <3


Another gorgeous cake! I'm definitely swooning. :-)

Amy's blah, blah, blogging

Oh my goodness, that cake is so cool! I love it for mother's day...hmmm, wonder if I could do it...


Oh, this is gorgeous. Hydrangeas always remind me of my dear Nan, who passed away two years ago. This would be perfect for Mothers Day to remember her. S x


Just gorgeous Amanda!! You inspire me to try all these fun things!!


You ooze talent girl!

And you make it look so easy! I am super grateful you do tutorials!

Brenda @ a farmgirl's dabbles

So very, very lovely. I heart this cake.

Allison [Haute Box]

Breathtakingly gorgeous!

This is simply gorgeous! I love the natural fluidity of it.... Thanks for the tutorial!

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

The patience you must have to be able to do these decorations! Beautiful!

Ashley Mae

I came on your blog the first time looking at your original hydrangea cake post. I was excited when I went on foodgawker today to see the tutorial on how you did the petals. And you added it so fast. I will be sure to add you to my favorites list.


What a beautiful cake!


oh my! This is really pretty!

I found you through the Decorated Cookie's post about your cookie giveaway.



Absolutly lovely:) I love what you do. Everytime.

Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction

You make it look so easy! I am really awful with that pastry tip, though. Flowers are always my downfall. I know my cake wouldn't look nearly as pretty as yours does!
