Hi,

Just wondering how I would create this pattern (or something similar) on fondant. I am looking for the simplest way, of course!

I guess you are talking about the actually flowers on the page. I would be a white or neutral color fondant and paint/add the color to each section with petal dust.

I'm wondering about the colored pattern. Seems like a lot of work to paint each section. icon_surprised.gif I have to do about 8 pieces for what I am making.

Maybe I just use a floral impression mat. How do I make it colorful though? Sponge? Looking for ideas!!!!

Oh, sorry....I saw Flower and thought you were trying to make those roses....lol

Yeah a floral impression mat could work, but you would still need to paint each section by hand.
or
Edible print pages....that is all i can come up with....Best of Luck

Hi, I'm thinking you can print the image out, enlarge to your liking, lay a piece of parchment over it, then trace with royal icing and then fill with the colors you need. You can make 8 of them, let them dry and peel them off and attach to the cake.

I ended up just using a floral impression mat and coloring some of it in with edible markers. It wasn't the exact pattern, but it did the trick and turned out alright.

I should have added the photo. Those flowers were too heavy for that poor vase and it caved!
