Hi on a recent cake I was desperate to have tiny dots on my fondant to match the vintage style ribbon I was using. I hand painted some but they weren't the neatest thing ever! Any ideas? I would also like to know how to put little flat white dots on fondant - i know if i tried to pipe them they would have spikes on the end!! icon_biggrin.gif

I use flower paste as is can roll out really thin with tiny circle cutter leave them to air dry for a short while so the don't lose their shape when putting on cake. If you pipe them a paintbrush will flatten any spikes. icon_smile.gif

I agree with jillyscakes use the fondant circles. dependant upon how small or large u want the polka dots to be, u use that size cirlce cutter.

Also, if u want to pipe the tinys dots then after piping a few at a time, let dry for a few seconds and then use a tiny brush, slightly wet to flatten out the spikes.
