You can get paper quilling books at the library which show you how to make different kinds of flowers. I haven't gotten a chance to try it, though I have always wanted to. Give it a shot and show us what you get!

Its definitely quilling. I have done the paper quilling before. The fondant should be much easier. The paper unravels the fondant will stay in shape just keep it on the table as your shaping it and as it dries and you shouldn't have a problem. Can't wait to see what you come up with. icon_smile.gif

Wow! Okay, now I don't have any choice but to give it a try!

These will have to dry completely before they go on a cake, right? So I'll have plenty of time to practice and get it right before I have to do the cake. I think I'll head to the library and see what I can find...

I'll keep you posted!

Yes, there is a tool for fondant quilling. I just bought one from Global Sugar Art made by JEM. Here is the link (hopefully)

of course you can use it Pat. I machine embroidered it onto a tshirt to wear when my siblings were here at Christmas. Very appropriate. LOL

She explains how to do those flowers in her book, if you are not able to purchase the book maybe you can borrow it from the library.

Butterwench, which of Colette's books was this in? I have Colette's Wedding Cakes, and it's not in there...

I'm going to butt in for a sec...there is a sugar quilling demo at the ICES Convention in July (in Orlando at Disney) on Thursday for those who are going and are interested.
