How do you make the snowflakes that are on this cake? And what kind of wire is that? I looks kind of flat & wide. Any links to products would be very appreciated. Here is a link to the photo of the snowflake cake...   http://cdn-20.create.net/siteimages/20/1/3/201376/7798966.jpg
What # tip did they use on these cupcakes to make the "pumpkins"?  
How do you do the paint splatters on this cake? I know you use thinned down Royal Icing, but what do you use to "splatter" the cake with? A fork, spatula, something else? Also, how much water do you use to thin down your royal icing to do this? I've only ever used stiff consistency RI to make roses & other flowers using the wilton recipe.   Here is the photo of the cake...   http://cakesdecor.com/cakes/9265
How do you make "glass" out of isomalt, like the photo of this cake?...   http://bubblynaturecreations.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/frozen-cake-2.jpg
How can I make the lines on a buttercream cake, like the photo I attached? Maybe a decorating comb? If so, where can I get the comb that was used on this cake? I tried looking up combs on amazon & global sugar art, but there aren't many to choose from. Or did they use something else?  
I added candy melts under the figures bottom (sitting straight on the buttercream icing) & behind it where it touched the polka dot on the top cake. The figure & the dot are the only things that came off of the cake. I don't think adding a skewer inside his bottom, into the cake would make that much of a difference because if a heavy medium sized fondant figure sitting on a soft buttercream cake is going to fall off it can still pull that stick out with it. There's nothing...
I recently made a 1st birthday cake & smash cake for someone with a gum paste figure sitting on top of the bottom cake (on the ledge next to the top cake). One of the legs of the figure was hanging down the side of the cake & the rest of it's body was was on top. Well, I made the cake the evening before & there was plenty enough room for the figure & I had it "glued" to the cake with some candy melts. The cake sat in it's box, in a cool dry room over night for pick up...
Someone sent me a photo of a buttercream wedding cake that is all white with a white bead border & some medium sized silver dragees on it (looks like maybe 8mm). She said her colors are purple & yellow & that she wants those colors somewhere on the cake. From what I see, the only option is either to do the borders in those colors or the dragees because that's all that is on the cake. My question is... do purple & yellow dragees even exist? What about edible pearls in those...
Thanks everyone! I found them on Sugar Craft.
What are the exact lace molds on this cake called? And where can I find/buy them?
