Ingredients

Instructions

  • Bake the cakes and prepare the frosting.
  • When the cakes cool completely, trim the domes (if any) to make the cakes flat.
  • Place one cake on a serving dish and spread frosting on top.
  • Place the other cake on top of the icing and press gently to secure into place.
  • Spread icing smoothly all over the cake.
  • Roll out green fondant and spread it over the cake.
  • Smooth it out and then cut off excess fondant with a pizza cutter.
  • Allow this cake to sit uncovered at room temperature for 1-2 hours because this allows the fondant to harden slightly and makes it easier to use edible markers.
  • Use a green marker to drawn grass all around the base of the cake.
  • Use a brown marker to draw branches and stems around the cake.
  • Use a red marker to draw flowers.
  • Fill the centers of the flowers with a black marker or you can even stick black edible pearls here.
  • Use a green marker again to draw leaves.
  • Stick a popsicle stick behind the fondant bumblebee topper with melted chocolate.
  • Then, push it into the top of the cake.
  • Stick store-bought red fondant flowers around the top of the cake with corn syrup or melted chocolate.
  • Follow the same steps with remaining two cakes. Enjoy!
