I started off by rolling out a 50/50 mix of fondant and gum paste to about 1/8″ thickness….go even thinner if you can. I like thin ruffles! – After rolling, cut the fondant into strips. I have a fondant ribbon cutter which sped things up a bit…but you can use a sharp knife too and just eyeball it.
I cut about six, approx. 12 inch long strips, which were about 1/2 inch wide. Make more up as you go.
One at a time, I placed a strip on my cel pad , and using a ball tool, I applied pressure as I slid the ball along the edge of one side. This is going to naturally give a nice frilled effect as the fondant becomes thinner.
The other strips of fondant were waiting for their turn under a piece of vinyl to keep them from drying out. You can also keep them under some cling film while they wait.
Decide how big a flower you want to make, and draw outlines lightly on the surface of your cake.
Use a paint brush to brush on some piping gel where your first strip will be placed.
Then, start arranging your strip. You may have to add a little more piping gel here and there. (Sugar glue or tylose glue works well too.)
Don’t press the frilly edge of the fondant into the glue–you’ll need that fluffiness for dimension. Continue with your circular pattern, brushing the area with piping gel and then wrapping around your fondantIt Once almost full. The last little space in the center of the flower can be filled by rolling a piece of fondant into a loose rosebud shape. You can use a toothpick or Q-tip to manipulate the petals however you like. Any droopy frills can be supported by toothpick until firm.

I am searching for someone to make our wedding cake for 16th April 2016 in Kingscliff. The cake would need to feed approx 80-90 people and I would be looking at a 3 tier cake. I am not sure what flavours yet but I have like the vintage or rustic styles so far. Are you able to send me approx pricing?
Hi Tricia, I have sent you an email. Cheers Bernice
I am making the wedding cake for my sons day…they want a brownie cake as they love brownies…i was thinking of doing 20cm round cakes stacking them with choc mix then doing a blind icing..i was just wondering what sort of icing mix is used for blind icing is it just butter icing…thankyou
Hi Marg, I am not clear what you mean by ‘Blind Icing”. If you mean an icing without fondant then I would either finish the cake in buttercream or ganache. The buttercream really needs to be a crusting buttercream so that it can better stand up to hot conditions and there are many recipes online to suit your personal taste. The more shortening you add the less good it tastes the more butter you add the more it is affected by heat so try out a few recipes till you get it right (To your taste)
Hi, getting married in Tumbulgum, 04 Jan 19, are you available?
We are interested in getting a cake pop cake with tiers and the top tier being an acutal cake. Is this something you could do? I have a photo which I can send you via email which gives a idea of what I mean.
Please send me all the details on firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers Bernice
