There is a picture of a cake with a beautiful sunflower design in one of my decorating books. I really wanted to try it but we had decided to cut back on desserts for a while. I went online and ordered cake dummies (styrofoam shaped like cakes) so I could continue to practice without having to eat more cake. I made a basic buttercream frosting and started practicing. I was very happy with how it turned out.
