Help....need your advise....Does anyone know who's cake this is, and what I would need to make it. It looks like a 6/8/10...does that look right to you? Are these just teardrop & round cutters? Ivory fondant with white flowers, and is that yellow or gold dots? Help please. What about the flowers on the bottom? Thanks guys.

It looks like the smaller circles are made using a circle cutter and use your thumb or ball tool to indent in the middle.

The larger tear drop shapes look like they are ribbons of sugarpaste that have been made to look like petals. If you look closely you can see the cake icing in the middle of the 'petal'.

The inside bit of the ribbon has some dot piping on it to hide the join to the cake. Some of the petals have a smaller petal on the top.

Hope this makes sense!

Using ribbons of sugarpaste would give you more of a 3D look like the cake, teardrop cutouts would give you a flatter look. See how they have turned the ribbons so they are coming out from the cake slightly.

Yeah I noticed the petals coming out a bit too. I think they must have used large teardrop cutters then cut smaller teardrop inside the petal then dried them on something that gave it the slight curved outward appearance? Or maybe just used a ball tool to curve the petal? I'm not sure. Thank you for all the replies. I didn't get any emails so I thought no one replied. I didn't realize I had to click "watch this topic" on my own topic....better go back and check my past post that I thought no one replyed to also. icon_surprised.gif

I seem to think you can draw out an outline or template of the flower so that they can be uniform then using a clay gun with tho circle disc squeeze out gumpaste and arrange along the outlines forming the flowers and leave to dry then pipe the dots, fix on the cake and put other finishing touches IMO.

That is a beautiful cake.

Please post your cake, I'd love to see it and get directions on how you figured it out. I'd like to make one to show.

I'm sure you can do it! thumbs_up.gif

It looks to me like is piped in Royal Icing with tip 104..Some of them are dried hard and some of them are piped right in top of the cake..Finish with dots and maybe some swirls or cornelli lace here and there...

Well, I met with her tonight. She decided to go with this one, but in all white, only 3 tiers, with sugar diamonds as flower centers, silver balls, silver and light blue luster dust for the petals. Matching cupcakes. She decided she wanted a "fun" cake. What do you think? I think it will be cool. Thanks so much for all your help guys. I may do the other one as a dummy cake, I really like it.
