I believe she may have brushed on royal icing for the flower. But the times I've looked at that cake close up, it look ed to smooth to be RI. Not sure. I'm positive someone in here knows exactly what it is though. icon_smile.gif

The way that I would go at this cake is:

1) White fondant base
2) Orange fondant panels on the sides
3) Stencil on the flower with the blue RI
4) Freehand the white "outline" with RI or crusting BC
5) Borders with BC

In the website they say it's painted on the fondant with food coloring and piped with royal icing (the outline). That sure is a beautiful bold color, would love to know more about it.

Hi Edna: What brand/color food coloring is used to get that beautiful deep covering like they achieved with the green? Is it just done in several coats? I don't think the fondant would like that icon_confused.gif

Here is the one I did
I use chefmaster colors. The fondant works great with them. You can add some super white to the colors too..Is not too difficult to paint on fondant.

Edna - could this be done with an airbrush by using matching sets of stencils and friskets?

Yes it can be done with an airbrush. But by stenciling it I think it might be time consuming, since you have to do the stencils. I freehanded the flower so it looked rustic..But all is possible! icon_rolleyes.gif
