I remember that cake from bridal snob, so pretty.  There is a tutorial for similarish flowers about half way down on this page, video.  Might help with ideas for the sequins.   http://www.threadcakes.com/entries/view/1485

http://www.cakesandcookies.co.za/product.php?mode=catpage&id=75   She sells tutorials on how to do it.  Scroll down a bit, she has some pretty detailed stuff.   Sorry, I'd tell you how if I knew, but I don't know anybody who has purchased the tutorials.
Does anybody have any ideas on how to create white stitching on pink fondant, I'm making a shoe like this:http://i.shoebuy.com/pi/conve/conve415612_166492_jb.jpgI have a stitching tool (which doesn't really look much like stitching really), but I wondered if I could use it to make the indentations, then go over it with royal icing to fill the cavities then clean off the stuff I don't want somehow....??

Raspberry jam is nice as a filling.
Does anyone know of any cutters/molds to make tiny tiny butterflies? I have the patchwork cutters, which are about 1cm, wondering if there are any smaller then that?

Every time I give someone a layered cake they are surprised it has filling and think I'm very clever, lol! So what I'm trying to say is that most mudcake recipes will not take layering into account, so whichever...
That's interesting Pam! Do you substitute some of the cream, or just mix it in at the end?
I'm going to slide it under the chair in front of me, it's only one tier, so should be OK. Sadly I can't keep it on my lap, safety regulations don't allow it, and neither would my three year old!
