I'm doing a groom's cake for a fireman tomorrow evening. I tried freehanding my own "flames" to use as borders, outlining, and using yellow, orange and red swirled candy melts to fill. I'm just not happy with them. Have searched like man and can't find a GOOD pattern for flames. Any suggestions? I have looked at a zillion coloring pages, and basically, I'm coming up with a tiny flame that's basically nothing more than a teardrop. Would appreciate help on this... Thanks in advance!!!

I don't know your design and not really understanding the candy melts.....when I have do flames I get white buttercream and stripe the bag yellow, red, orange in equal markings. I've always had awesom flames that way. Or use yellow and just strip red & orange.

If you've already searched this route then I apologize- if not, here are some ideas to get the flame you want:

many many hits to look through/choose from : (also tried yahoo image search with fire and got a number of good hits also) - I use this link all the time when I'm looking for inspiration for graphic design projects, type in 'all media types' flames, or maybe even fire, or fires? seems like there are at least a few to choose from that might suit!
Good luck!

Here's a cake that Darra made. It says in the gallery that she used colorflow. Maybe you could PM her for the pattern she used.

BTW, nice cake Darra!!!!
