This Accordion Pleated Paper Flower Tutorial will help you create a blooming party this summer! These 9 inch round flowers are easy to make and are stunning when grouped together on a wall or in individual flower pots. These flowers were made and displayed in the windows of the Bristol Olive Oil Company in Bristol Virginia. The large paper flower is constructed with card stock scrap-booking paper in 4 quadrants and glued together, then attached to a dowel rod. The lime green leaves were cut to size and attached to the dowel with green floral tape. These cute blooming beauties were potted in bright yellow and white polka-dot flower pots. Styrofoam and green moss kept the flowers upright and secure in the flower pots.

The cake is decorated with butter cream fondant and decorated with orange, lime and hot pink Gerber Daisies. This cake is so much fun to create! You will have a great time making the cake balls, which are made from pound cake slices and tinted frosting. The cake balls are refrigerated until firm, then added to raw cake batter and baked. When the cake is sliced the cake has Spot-On Dots inside. My cake was inspired by Amanda Rettke’s Book. I changed a few things to make it my own, but please check out her book. It is fabulous and Spot-On when it comes to creating interesting cakes with a surprise in the middle.
The real queen of baking surprise- inside cakes is Amanda Rettke. Her book Surprise-Inside Cakes: Amazing Cakes for Every Occasion with a Little Something Extra Inside can be linked here.
