This was my first time using fondant . . . it was fun, and I think that it came out pretty good. The cake was a 2 layer 9" spice cake with apple filling and BC frosting. The rose was made by tracing a drawing onto rice paper, and coloring it in with edible markers. We smoothed a very thin layer of piping gel over the top and then sprinkled super fine sugar over the top. The ribbon really doesn't match but it was all I had.
