I'm so new to the fondant thing...used it once before to make a palm tree and that's it. I'm in Wilton's course 3 right now. Anywho...I'm going to be doing a cake as a gift for my cousin's bridal shower in June and her flower is calla lilies. So I'd love to make some to put on top. I've been scouring the posts here to get tips. I ended up doing it with a heart cutter I have already. I just want some opinions cause I'm not sure if it looks right or if I should tweak something. It wasn't completely dry when I did this, just put it together for a quick pic. Thanks!!
I think it looks good.
Very pretty! Pinch the bottom closed a bit more and dust with light apple green petal dust 1/3 of the way up and you're right in there!
You have it, look good, follow the suggestions already submitted and I'm sure your cousin will be thrilled with the outcome.
very nice!! as stated above pinch down a little and add a stem.
Thanks everyone! I'll have to get some of that petal dust to try - how else would I do that stem part at the base with fondant? Just wrap some around (green fondant)?
Marthajo thanks for that pic! I see what you mean about trimming the petal a bit (not so much overlap). I'll leave the bugs out
You can use regular chalk pastels as long as they are non toxic. I use them and just color back and forth in the same place on a piece of paper until I have a good amount on my paper. Then just swipe your brush across it to pick some up on it as you would with petal dust. Only thing is that this method doesn't allow for any sparkle like luster dust, more like petal dust which has a matte finish. HTH.
