Fondant is tinted in six hot fashion colors, then shaped into tufts to create a swash of brilliant texture across your cake! Use the Wilton® Color Right® Performance Color System to tint the bright fondant shades using the QuickCount? drop-by-drop formulas below.
Make fondant tufts. Tint 24 oz. each of white fondant following color formulas above. Use fondant roller with pink guide rings to roll out colors, separately, 1/16 in. thick. Use straight side of round cut-out ?C? to cut six shapes in each color. Fold fondant circles in half and then in quarters. Pinch bottom of fondant to make each tuft.
Attach tufts. Use white decorator icing and a cut disposable decorating bag to attach tufts to cake in a diagonal line, alternating colors and tapering at top and bottom edges of cake.
The delicate paper-like petals of the gum paste peony make a beautiful companion for the crepe-look buttercream piped ruffles on this tiered cake. Make the flower using Wilton Ready-To-Use Gum Paste and the cut-outs and flower-making instructions in the Peony Gum Paste Cut-Outs Set.
