I keeps seeing cakes that have really really small fondant details that look like they are cut outs, but I can't seem to find that size anywhere. Can someone help me?

Here are couple of examples:

I wanted to make this cake and couldn't figure out the dress flowersImage

Or I saw this picture here (that I can't find now) that was green with white piping and 2 little birds and the birds seem very small. [/img][/url]

They are called PME plungers. Here's a link for some leaves.

And if you go to Country Kitchen they have tons of them. Just type in plungers and you will see tons of shapes.

Hope this helps.

If you want to do it cheapie-style like I do icon_biggrin.gif Use scrapbooking punches. Roll your fondant very thin and it will fit in decorative hole punches...and you can find the tiny ones at Micheals for a dollar.

You can also use your decorating tips. The openings are in various sizes for the round writing tip.

Texas_Rose you are a genius!!! I have been searching high and low for a small flower cutter and can't find any around me, but I have a bunch of those scrapbooking cutters. I am so excited to try that now!!! Do you know if you can do the same with chocolate clay?
