Floral Crowns...for your CAKE!!

Floral crowns have been trending all over the blog sphere lately so why not translate that into cake?! 

Here is a very simple photo tutorial on how to create this look:

Supplies: Floral sprig, Floral wire, and a pair of wire cutters or scissors to cut the wire.

I chose a nice, full sprig with lots of bright, colorful buds for this cake. I loved the contrast of the deep, dark pink of the flowers with the soft, pastel pink of the buttercream.

Bend your sprig starting at the bottom with the woody end. 

Simply wrap your floral wire around your sprig where the bottom and the top meet.

And there you have it. A beautiful floral crown for your cake! Add a large focal flower and any other filler flowers that you want and you just can't go wrong.
