Basket of Flowers

LD 5-1

It’s a wrap!

Last day at Nana Cake Intermediate Course for Korean Buttercream Flowers happened in lightning speed, looking at all the photos in my phone and seeing my daughter happy face when I opened the cake box to show her the floral cake made me realized I did a lot today in a very short time.

The class started with the making of Freesia, Nana asked us to make 6 of them in 5 different colours then we move on to Ranunculus Hanoi which is pretty delicate and time consuming to say the least. Afterwards we moved on to Scabiosa (super intricate beyond words!) and the playful bright red Raspberry.

My favourite part of piping the buttercream today was the basket weaving, I’ve never decorated square cake before and now I’m truly intrigue, there’s something about alternating patterns that made it really cool, watch this space!


I’ve brought some cupcakes to the class and Nana decorated them for me, it’s really mind blowing what she can do with such a small space, I will have to practice my piping skill before I attend another class with Nana Cake.

Until next time Nana, kamsahamnida

Learned a lot on my day 1 at Nana Cake Korean Buttercream Flowers (Intermediate Course) today, Tulip was my favourite buttercream flower to pipe (happened to be my Mother In Law favourite flowers too, lucky me!) Hydrangea was very complicated but towards piping the 3rd colours I slowly get a hang of it (we’ve got to do at least 6 set in 5 different colours!) last but not least Camelia, its medium hard, out of 7 best Camelias that I made my teacher said only 1 passed as great, really tough cookie hey! Nevertheless,  its my first time ever piping all of these flowers so she did give me some credits (smiley face).

The flower cake arrangement of the day was Floral Wreath and we’ve got to write a short message in the centre of the cake. My short message is dedicated to all of you wonderful readers out there, Thank You!

On that note I’ve gotta go to dream land soon, more learning tomorrow, good night World ❤

I did it!

I’ve completed the 2 days of Basic Course on Korean Buttercream Flowers by Nana Cake, hooraayyy! Next week I’m moving on to the Intermediate Course, can’t wait!

Below flowers arrangement cake (titled Blossoms by my teacher) were consists of Daisies, Peonies and Ranunculus. My favourite flowers to pipe was Peonies and the most challenging one for me were the white daisies, I definitely need to practice to pipe it more. The Ranunculus were the fastest that I made out of all of them, I love piping the tiny size ones, aren’t they pretty?


Korean Buttercream Flowers


Hello Everyone,

The moment that I’ve been waiting for is finally here!
Thanks to my better half I’m able to join the famous Nana cake decorating class in Manila this weekend. She came straight from Busan, South Korea and well known for her clean, modern yet sophisticated buttercream flowers. YES … I’m learning the beautiful art of making Korean Buttercream Flowers directly from the Master herself, one happy cake artist here!

Check out the result of my day 1 learning the art of making edible Korean buttercream flowers below, I’ve made Roses, Chrysanthemum and Apple Blossoms (the latest being the most challenging one!). Very excited to learn more flowers piping tomorrow, have a great weekend everyone.
