We've seen tutorials on decorating cakes with flowers but there are some equally beautiful designs using just flower petals. Fresh petals straight from a rose make an elegant looking cake with a unique lite rose flavor, but candied flower petals add sparkle and color as well. Fondant petals in various shapes can dress a cake beautifully with rose petals and plumeria petals featured here. You can choose from several buttercream styles as shown with the rainbow petal cake and rose theme cakes. Whatever you choose you are sure to have fun creating your own special petal design.
