Step 1

At least 2-3 days in advance: Make fondant flowers and leaves.

Roll out neon fondant colors 1/8 in. thick and cut 11 each medium and large flowers using daisy Cut-Outs. Tint 1 oz. white fondant green, roll 1/8 in. thick and cut 10 leaves using medium Cut-Out.

Step 2

Let flowers and leaves dry on cornstarch-dusted surface. When dry, brush flowers and leaves with water and sprinkle with Shimmer Dust to match colors; let dry. Attach medium daisy to center of large daisy with thinned fondant adhesive.

Step 3

Roll small white balls of fondant and attach for flower centers with damp brush; let dry. Cut 3 florist wires to 13 in., 3 to 10 in., 2 to 9 in. and 3 to 8 in. When dry, attach flowers and leaves to florist wires with thinned fondant; set aside.

Step 4

Prepare 3-layer cake (two 2 in. and one 1 in. high to make a 5 in. high cake) for rolled fondant by lightly icing with buttercream. Cover cakes with white fondant; smooth with Easy-Glide Smoother. Combine remaining violet fondant from flowers with white fondant to equal 15 oz.; add a small amount of violet icing color for shade used on embossed stripes.

Step 5

Tint 5 oz. white fondant with Royal Blue icing color for shade used on smooth stripes. Roll out violet fondant 3/16 in. thick; using Cutter/Embosser with 2 straight-edge cutters and 2 striped embossing wheels (no spacers), cut 8 double-wide strips, 5 in. long. Roll out blue fondant 3/16 in. thick; using 2 straight-edge cutters and one 1/3 in. spacer, cut 8 smooth strips, 5 in. long. Attach strips, alternating blue and violet, to cake sides with damp brush.

For top border, roll 5/8 in. white fondant balls and attach with thinned fondant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Make sure that you use a thick enough wire for the flowers so they don't droop when you position them in the cake. Also be sure to roll out your fondant thin for the flowers. Thick flowers are not very attractive. Don't forget your edible glitter! It added a lot of extra sparkle to this cake!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I actually ended up using gum paste for the flowers, much more sturdy and you do not have to as long to let them dry. Made it for my grandma, she loved it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I prefer to pipe a bead border with buttercream instead of trying to roll out fondant balls, much easier and faster if you need to save time.
