Hi everyone

 

Just wondering if someone could tell me what technique is used to make the ruffle effect on the top tier of this cake. I've studied the photo and the best I've come up with is flower shape fondant cut outs stuck on randomly??

 

If anyone has any suggestions or ideas, please share!

 

Thanks in advance

Lena

To me, it looks like a simple four petal flower cut out.

 

Is that what dogwood is?

well dogwood has a little tip on the ends of each petal, I cannot tell by the photo, but my first glance was dogwood due to the width of the petals. Poppy is another option, but two petals are slightly larger and it is much more rounded.

And I'm going to guess a hydrangea cutter.

It might be just a regular 5-petal cutter. And they're rounded petals. You can see it bigger in this link. She does paint them one by one with the darker dusts in the center, though. I've watched her craftsy classes. Lots of work.
