Well you have to have a ball tool and a foam pad. Place the gumpaste flower on the pad and roll the tool around the edges in the flower. HTH

You place the fondant onto your sponge and then roll the ball tool around on the edge. It takes some practice, but you can do it. Good luck.

I am so sorry, I can't help you on that question...I don't have the book or know of the cake you are asking about.

Maybe someone might see your thread and be able to give you more help on that question.
Good Luck & God Bless,
Sharon
