tiny pink flowers

I used white fondant for the cakes (Lemon-Raspberry inside!) and made the tiny flowers in gumpaste...then brushed them with lilac irridescent powder. The leaves were brushed with green irridescent powder.

sometimes I have a problem with FOndant. I get too many "pleats" or folds at the buttom. can that be eliminated if it is thicker ? thatnks antonia

Here is my trick for avoiding those creases!! If I make an 8" cake, for example, I fondant it as best as I can...then I cut away the fondant at the board and THEN I put the cake on a 7" cake pan turned upside down. I leave it overnight. The fondant relaxes and stretches down ever so slightly. In the morning, I re-trim the cake's bottom edge cleanly with a sharp knife. It works SO well!

Another thing...when you roll your fondant, don't go thinner than 1/4" thick. It seems a lot, but any less becomes translucent...and when you can see the inside cake layers it really detracts from the cake's smooth look...that's ALL you can see!
