Tutorial: Buttercream Petal Cake

We’re delighted to share a Cake Style tutorial for creating a beautiful and professional looking buttercream petal cake with you. Be warned, watching Vanessa pipe the petals on this cake is mesmerising! With a little practice, you’ll be creating your own in no time.

To create this cake at home, you will need:

  • 1 x crumb coated cake (or a foam dummy cake if you’re practising)
  • A spatula
  • A cake scraper or ruler
  • A piping bag
  • A piping coupler (optional)
  • No. 104 piping tip
  • A laminating sheet to practice piping petals
  • Buttercream icing (your own recipe or our Buttercream Icing premix)

Here are a few stills from her video – go watch it, we bet you learn something new!
