Flower Crown Cat Cake

MEOW MIX! I’ve got lots of cakes to share in the coming weeks, including this furry yellow buttercream cutie cat made for sweet little Rosie, two-year-old Vice President of Collage Collage! Rosie loves cats, she loves yellow. Together, with her namesake flower crown? Flower Crown Cat Cake, headed to the feline version of Burning Man or Coachella or wherever love conquers all flower crowns appear most these days. The last time I wore a flower crown was for my Auntie’s wedding in the 1980s. I wore a powder pink dress, my face was a Chinese chipmunk and I fell asleep at the banquet reception, face on the table, a live band playing Could I Have This Dance. I remember that flower crown being very pokey. I am guessing today’s flower crowns are less pokey, but I will never know, because at 41, my flower crown wearing days are very over, unless I join the local theatre troupe.

Equipment used to make this rosey baby: a large multi-opening grass tip to pipe the fur, fondant for the face, a petal tip for the roses, and a leaf tip for the green leaves.

    This cake looks amazing. I was just wondering exactly what type of tips you used like the brand or name. Also when I pipe I find the buttercream slightly melts and the shape goes. I was wondering what you would do to counteract this.

    Thanks so much

      Hi! They are Wilton brand tips – #234 for the fur, and 104 for roses. Any leaf tip will do! It all depends on your recipe… Send me an email to Lyndsay (at) cococakeland (dot) com!

    HI! This cake is adorable!! Is the cake two or three layers? Also when frosting the top, did you fill in from the center going out, in a circular fashion, or did you just start filling it in? Thank You!

      The cake is three layers, and I go from the edge and work my way in, in circles! :)
