Here's one for Merckens candy melts: http://www.*******************/Merckenschocolatecoloringguide.html
Just ordered some last night!   Absolutely love it....tried 2 other brands that didn't compare.
This isn't my photo:  http://thefitbride.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/0515010.jpg   ...but these are the exact sets that I have and love, love, love...   They're magnetic, so they stay together in the drawer!!... the spoons are double-sided, so the narrow-er side fits into small spice jars when the normal side is too big...AND there's a 1/2 Tb. size, which you don't normally get in a basic set.   I've had them about a yr.-and-a-half, use them pretty much daily for one...
Where did you see it for $139.??   On their site the smaller one is $195. and the larger is $225.!
It's not as bad as her Kwanzaa "cake"...
Here's an even closer view of just the flower: https://www.facebook.com/customcakesbykendra/photos/a.265131900259271.49277.264966766942451/265134393592355/?type=3&theater   The center looks like a ribbon rose, which you make with a long strip of fondant, then you start curling it around itself... The petals appear to have been made with a heart shaped cutter...
You're welcome!   You could always make the tier with rosettes a dummy...then you can work on it before-hand at your own pace...
Here's a few:   http://www.mycakeschool.com/blog/pretty-pink-flower-cake/   http://cupadeecakes.blogspot.com/2014/04/ruffle-ribbon-rose-tutorial.html   http://littledelightscakes.com/coral-ruffle-wedding-cake/   http://www.veenaartofcakes.com/fondant-rose-ruffle-cake/
I use Nestle White Chocolate morsels + heavy cream...heated and left to set like ganache...   I've only made small RKT pieces so 1 cup of morsels + 2 Tb cream worked great. In fact, after it's applied and has dried a little, you can rub the spatula marks out with your finger which I really like.
You can also use cocoa powder to "age" your design...
