Instructions
Cover 8" petal cake with green fondant and 6" with blue fondant. Since both tiers are only 1 layer support between the layers is not necessary. Use a #4 tip with white buttercream to pipe a ball trim around bottom edge of both tiers. Use a #2 tip to pipe random graduated dots over entire cake. Brush two hydrangea bunches with lavender petal dust. (Place the flowers over boiling water before brushing them to help the dust cling to the flowers.) Place one bunch of flowers with leaves on top of cake. Use wire snips to cut apart second bunch and place single blossoms randomly all over cake. Use pearl spray to spray butterflies before placing randomly on cake. Lightly spray entire cake with pearl spray to give subtle shine.
