Broken Video?

Once again Abi creates another fun number shaped cake stylised in a beautifully piped fluffy baby flamingo, set on a vibrant Aqua sugarpaste background. In this tutorial you will learn an array of gorgeous mixed piping techniques: stars, roses and swirls all created using different stylised nozzle tips piped in a soft pink coloured buttercream. To add iconic features you will also be shown how to create shapes with the use of cutters and finally how to add beautiful sprinkles and a little spritz of edible gold sparkle. For more great ideas check out our other tutorials below for on how to decorate number cakes and don't forget to download a copy of the number six template to help cut your cake into shape.
