I am a great fan of your work. Perfect and flawless!! My question is, do you make the mums on your newest fall cakes directly on the cake or on a nail? If you use a nail, how do you get them so big? Mine always come out very small.

I posted instead of PMing because I thought others may be interested in your answer.

Thank you all for your nice compliments!!!

suzylynn58, I make the mums on a nail. If you want make a big mum, then you pip more and more petals until them full the nail.

plbennett_8, sorry, I don't understand your question.

I used grass tip to make the Pine leaves in this cake.

Thanh Thanh... the Pine Needles! icon_biggrin.gif On the leaves on your fall cakes, did you use a toothpick, or paint brush to "pull" the brown and green colors through your leaves? They look 3D and very real with the different colors... thumbs_up.gif I'm a serious newbie, and trying to learn from the greats here on CC icon_smile.gif
