Rated 5 out of 5 by brandeanne from I really just want to comment on the alphabet cookie cutters, but there is no place to do that. Rolling out fondant and using cookie cutters for get the shapes you want has to be one of the easiest decorating techniques out there. For my niece's second bday, I made large bright pink fondant flowers w/bright yellow centers and fondant letters to spell out Happy Birthday in bright yellow. I also made small fondant flowers in both pink and yellow. All flowers and letters were cut using cookie cutters. Each cupcake had chocolate icing w/either a big flower, several small flowers, or a letter adorning it. The dark brown, bright yellow, bright pink color scheme looked fantastic & cupcakes are sooo easy for kid's bday parties :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Crafting from This cake is always a hit & fun to make. The colors are great attention getters for kids. The 1st time I made it I followed the instructions exactly. My Granddaughter loved it. I recently made it again and decided it would look great with the large candy buttons along with the fondat circles. I set the ribbons on straws and let sit for a couple days. They are still fragile not matter how long they sit so be careful placing them on the cake and just make lots of them. My Grandson loved his cake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dawnasie from I am new to cake decorating and found this to be pretty easy. I made this for my son's 2nd birthday party. All the kids loved it and so did the parents. I also made cup cakes for the kids and put little curly-Q's on top. TOTAL HIT!!! I only wish that I would have made the curly-Q's alittle thinner. It wasn't until I was almost done that I realized how thick I made them. The ones that were thin were perfect. Oh, and I couldn't find the silly feet stand anywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cocoteldisney from I tried this cake this past weekend for my sister-n-law's birthday and although I didn't have the cute feet to put it on, it turned out really cute. I have just completed my first cake decorating class (and now am starting fondant and gum past class) and I found this cake easy to do. Thanks Wilton for posting such cute cakes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by est845 from this cake got great reviews!!! i found it a bit tricky to keep the strips of fondant on the dowel rods so i put a tiny drop of water on the end of the fondant and stuck it to the rod. when the curls were dry and set al i had to do was wiggle it a bit and it came right off. simple!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jdmullikin from Curl your fondant "ribbons" a couple of days in advance to allow them to dry. Some breakage does occur, so make them longer than you need. This was an easy cake to make and it was popping with color. I absolutely LOVE the cake plate with feet! Everyone thought it was so cute. :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by Malou from I learned the pretty twist in this cake, It makes bows so fuller and prettier, everyone was impressed . I think that making the twist thin, gives a delicate touch, it's better to make the bow and twists a day ahead so it will be dry enough to hold the shape better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by backstaj from This was a fun cake to make and it was very well received. I made it for a 60th birthday party for a guy with really big feet, and it just added to the festive mood. The fondant curls were easy to execute and fun to make.
