A friend of mine found this cake that she wants me to make. Can anyone help me with how the fondant was made to have a outward curl to it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Yes, they are individual rose petal, worked with a ball too and placed around the cake. Seen many of these on the internet, pinterest, etc.hth
AThis is very similar to the "frill cake". I'm using my phone so I can't tell I'd they used petal cutters or a border cutter. In either case, the ball tool or a cel stick is used to frill & curl the edges.
Hey Mom 2 Twins!!
I'm guessing those are individual flower petals that have been ruffled just slightly with a ball tool and a flower pad, then left to dry just slightly. Then you can just place them on the cake one by one and they should keep their shape with the ruffly edge. I did that technique with these flower petals for this cake. Just make sure to make more petals that you even think you'll need :) Good luck!
I think this tutorial is similar to what you're looking for: http://cakecentral.com/tutorial/petal-cake and here's another post that describes the process: http://www.mamawacakes.com/2012/07/ombre-petal-cake-variations.html HTH!
