Enjoy!

    Make your favorite frosting (mine is a cream cheese buttercream) and pipe a border on your first cake layer. This will keep your whipped cream from gushing out. Fill with cookie-n-cream whipped cream.

    Tint the other three (smaller) portions of frosting black, green, and yellow-green (or any other color-combination you would like).

    Then start piping the "petal" design - pipe small circles of frosting in a vertical row on the side of the cake. Then use an offset spatula to smear the circles into petals. Continue with the next vertical row where the previous row ends.
