Oh, that is adorable!! Looks like she may be a buttercream transfer. Her cheeks look sprayed, and the flowers maybe fondant? Or just piped on with a fat tip.

Not too sure, but it would be fun to recreate! Good luck!

Ok, so if she pipped the flowers what number did she used?

I actually think it is the reverse LOL

I think the girl is fondant and the flowers are piped .. probably with just a round tip icon_smile.gif

Looks like the flowers are piped, probably with a #5 inside and #8 outside and the girl is fondat with some piping on top to give texture.

Thanks!! I'll just have to make an edible copy of the doll and cut it out & then place it on the cake. What do you guys think? Also what kind of letter style is that? I tried looking for it on my microsoft word but could not find it. icon_confused.gif

I tell you what the funky letter tappits would be cute on this cake icon_smile.gif

As far as the lettering goes ... this style.. I think it is just the ladies writing which would be hard to duplicate unless you blew the pic up

wgoat5: OMG I search for the funky tappits & they look great. Now how do I use them? Do I just place them on top of the cake?

Where is a cake where I'm able to see how the funky tappits look like on a cake?

Ohhh yes I forgot the instructions... LOL

You roll the gp very thin and let it dry just a bit... dip your tappits in some corn starch.. press hard on the paste with the tappits.....if the letters are stuck then just slap it agains the side of a table and they will pop out...

Secret is to roll the paste thin and let it dry just a wee bit
