BUTTERCREAM FLOWER CAKE TUTORIAL How To Cook That Ann Reardon


Welcome to How To Cook That
I am Ann Reardon Today we are going to make this pretty flower
cake using just buttercream for those decorations. For the filling between the layers we are
using mascapone, cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla. I’ll put all the recipe quantities
on the howtocookthat.net website in grams and ounces and cups for you and there’s a
link to that below. Mix that together until it’s combined. And then for the syrup you’ll need sugar,
water and coffee, add the sugar to the water and heat it until it is dissolved. Then add
in the coffee and stir that through well. For the cake itself I am using my sponge cake
recipe and I’ll link you to that video in the blog post too. Brush on as much or as little of that coffee
syrup as you like and then add a generous amount of the cream cheese filling. This syrup
together with the filling give it a bit of a tiramisu sort of flavour to the cake.
Stack on the next layer, more syrup, loads more filling and then the top layer. Mix up a batch of my buttercream and again
I’ll link you to that video in the blog post. Cover the whole cake in a thin layer of buttercream,
you could use ganache or whatever frosting you like for this part, we’re just covering
the whole cake.. Use a spatula to smooth out the top … and
the sides of the cake. Then run the curved end of the spatula around the base of the
cake in a straight line and then repeat that all the way up the sides. For our flowers we want to mix different colours
and you can do whatever you like. I am using a green, pinks purpley colours , yellow and
a little bit of uncoloured frosting. Take a flower spike – this just makes it easy
to twirl whatever you are piping, that is why we have one of these. Put a little bit
of frosting on it and then a piece of non-stick baking paper on top. Then pipe a cylinder
of yellow then just add some extra bits on top there. Just squeeze and pull up, squeeze
and pull up so that it makes the centre of your flower. Next take some pink icing and
a 125 piping tip and pipe around the centre all the way around… then add petals going
up and down, then just up around and down. Keep going around like that until you are
happy with the size of your flower. Next start in the middle and pipe a tall blog.
Then pipe around it with pink to make the centre of the flower. Then pipe petals just
like we did before and keep going all the way around the flower. And you want to repeat that with different
coloured pinks so that you get some variation on your cake and then you want to put them
in the freezer to go firm. Using your palest pink make some little flowers
just piping up across and in, up across and in. And keep going so that you have four little
petals. To make a rose bud pipe a centre in whatever
colour you have spare, and then wrap it around in the green. Then pipe the flower colour
in the centre using a 349 tip twisting as you go. Then take a knife and close up the bud so
you can just see a bit of the pink. For some extra greenery pipe a blob of green
then pipe spikes on the top and all over it, around the sides. Place it in the freezer
to go firm. And then once it is firm pipe a little dot of white icing on the end of
each spike. Add some icing in the centre of the cake just
to raise up the middle flowers so it is not completely flat so it looks a bit more like
a bunch. And add one of your bigger flowers and some rose buds around it. Then pipe on
some green on the side and add your next flower into place. If you don’t pipe that green on
first you might find it a little bit hard to get in between the two flowers without
bumping them . Continue to add more and more until you have covered the whole top of the
cake. If you live somewhere hot like I do you’ll need to work fairly fast before they
soften. Or you can just put them back int he freezer while you are working. If you love howtocookthat share the video
