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!
