I'd not seen this done so I thought I'd give it a go. I wanted a very stylish sort of cake for my son's bride to be's shower. This is a chocolate cake with cream cheese filling and Fondex fondant covering both tiers with the top one slightly off set. The ribbons were made into flowers with ribbon covered buttons and a little blingy circle of rhinestones around it. Like I said, I've not seen ribbon flowers before. If anyone has, I'd love to see how they did theirs! Here's a pic.

They are made with satin ribbon. There are several ways to make them. Look online for vintage ribbon flowers. The centers were just regular buttons I covered with the black ribbon.

No, not at all. They go very fast and are quite easy to do. There are many other more complex vintage flowers that I'm going to do next.

I've also done a similar effect on my black ball of flowers but from fondant. Yours are super adorable!
