Layered Buttercream Cake Design Recipe for Easter day 2024

Layer buttercream on cakes in different colours and textures to create a beautiful and distinctive cake design.


– Cake Recipe of your choosing – ▢Classic Vanilla Buttercream (Or your favorite buttercream that contains butter so that it firms quickly when chilled.) – ▢Coloring gels: We used Americolor Terra Cotta + Wilton Rose. – ▢Bench scraper and cake comb (cake comb is optional for layered buttercream, but needed or the design that we demonstrated. Our is from a Wilton set.) – ▢Piping tip 3 for adding small dots and bead border (optional) – ▢Gerbera Daisy (optional)

As always, frost your cake with vanilla frosting. To make the filling firmer, we put the cake in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes.

After that, we added more frosting and combed it. Remember that this filling will only show on top.

I chilled the tier again in the freezer for about 15 minutes to firm it up after combing it. Then I put a thick layer of lighter pink frosting around the middle of the cake.

With a bench scraper, make it smooth. To set the first two layers of buttercream, I put the tier back in the freezer for about 15 minutes.

Then I wrapped the bottom of the tier in the last darker buttercream. Spread it thick enough to smooth with a bench scraper without ruining the other icing layers.

A gerbera flower, sitting on a small piece of wax paper to keep it from moving, was put on top of the cake.

The flower will look good on the cake for a few hours, so we didn't add a water source or water pick to it.

For our test, we put the cake in the fridge overnight, and the next morning it still looked good.  Of course you can use a flower water pick or tube if you want to!
