For each daisy make a calyx as follows: Roll a 1/2 in. ball of green gum paste. Brush bottom of daisy at wire with gum glue adhesive. Wrap ball around wire at base of daisy and shape into a cone, with flat end directly under daisy.

Step 2

Make sign. Use 9 in. fondant roller with purple guide rings to roll out reserved white gum paste 1/8 in. thick. Use sign pattern and fondant trimmer to cut sign. Use veining tool from 10-pc. gum paste/fondant tool set to score lines for wood grain. Let dry on cornstarch-dusted board.
