Pretty Piped Birthday Cake

I was asked to do a last minute Birthday Cake for a good friend and was stuck as to what to do with it. I opted for lots of borders. On the top I used a #124 Rose tip and used a scallop technique. I added another U shape with a #23 star tip and then the darkest blue detail is done with a #4 writing tip.

Under the Rose and Carnation design I laid down a spray of green stems with a #4 writer and then just a touch of leaves.

The side detail is a #23 star tip is used in the bottom shell border and the C shape above the  Blue scallop that mimics the top detail. The Sweet Pea detail is done with a #124 Rose and the dot detail is a#4 writer.

Piped Pumpkin Head Tutorial

Pretty Pumpkin head is a fun to make Holiday cake. She is made of three 8" layers and two marshmallows for the stem. The leaves are made with a #124 rose tip and the eyes with a coupler opening. I used piping gel for the black accents. This can be altered for a boy by leaving off the eyelashes and lips.
By leaving off the face all together and adding fall colored mums around the stems, you have a beautiful center piece for an Autumn feast.

Fall Leaves- Maple, Oak and Acorns

Autumn Leaves are a fun and beautiful alternative to flowers.
This Design works well for a fall dinner party, Thanksgiving, as well as for a Masculine cake.

The most important tip for creating beautiful Fall Leaves is the getting the right colors. These need to be deep and bright. Rich reds, oranges, and yellows work great, but adding some green can add a late summer splash. A striping technique is employed here to get the striking red edges. 

To see the how to create this cake check out the video link.
