What is the best way to make a 3d fleur de lis? I am new to cake decorating this is my third cake. Thanks for any advice!
Do a Google image search.
Find a fleur de lis that you like and copy/paste it into MS Paint.
In MS Paint you can adjust the size, since you want the whole cake to be the fleur de lis, you'll probably have to print the template off in 3 parts.
Cut the template shape out from what you print and then use it as a guide when carving the cake.
If you're not comfortable w/ the techy side of this, let me know what size you're wanting to make this, and I'll see if I can create a template and email it to you. Just shoot me a PM.
