Step 2

On 6 in. cake, using knife to imprint lines 1 1/2 in. apart at a 45ยบ angle. Using tip 2 and buttercream icing, outline imprinted lines and pipe dots where lines intersect. For 10 in. cake, roll a 1/2 in. diameter log of fondant; attach around bottom border with damp brush.

Step 3

For leaves, roll out fondant 1/8 in. thick. Cut leaves using largest Cut-Out. Work in small batches to prevent drying. Set on thin foam and score veins using small veining tool. Heavily vein leaves to create feather effect. This will increase leaf size by approximately 1/4 to 1/2 in. around. Beginning at bottom of cake, attach leaves with damp brush, positioning so that leaves hang over edge of cake plate. Repeat, overlapping leaves until cake is completely covered.

Pipe dots for flower centers, faces, figure piping and border effects. When making large dots, lift the tip as you squeeze to allow icing to fill out completely.

To create a variety of curved shapes, use both sides of Flower Formers to dry leaves. You can also add a colorful flair to leaves by brushing them with a mix of clear vanilla and icing color or use pearl dust and brush color onto leaves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just did this the other day for a bridal shower. I did an 8and 10 inch because I had a shoe to go on the top. The leaves were very time consuming , but the effect was great. It's hard to tell how many leaves you will need. I did 70 and could have put on another row but didn't. I finished the top of the leaves with sugar pearls all around. Looked good thank you to the person with the review to soften the leaf first big difference. Thank you wilton for a beautiful cake a and great tutorial.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Learned staking techniques on this one. And it was our first fondant cake! Though we were nervous about stacking the tiers, it survived just fine, and the feathers on the bottom tier were absolutely georgeous! We made this for a wedding shower for a professional ballerina, and the elegance struck just the right note. Lots of fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was so beautiful when it was finished. However, you should use the, ball tool to lenghten and soften the edges first then use the veiner tool and pull out to the side of the leaf to make it look more like feathers. If you don't they just look like really ugly leaves!
