Squares prove to be as gifted in sophisticated settings as more gracefully-curved shapes. The lines of this package design are softened by the scalloped and scrolled ribbons and a fluffy top bow of rolled fondant.
Several days in advance, make bow and base using 1 package rolled fondant: Roll out fondant 1/4 in. thick and cut circle base with cookie cutter; let dry. Make bow loops: use pasta wheel to cut out rolled fondant strips. Cut 20 strips 1 in. wide and 8 in. long; cut 20 strips 1/2 in. wide and 6 in. long. Fold strips in half, pinching open ends together; turn on sides and let dry on surface dusted with cornstarch.
Prepare cakes for
stacked construction. Prepare cakes for
rolled fondant by lightly icing with buttercream. Tint 5 packages fondant rose and cover cakes; smooth with Easy-Glide Smoothers**.
Using remaining fondant, roll out and cut strips for package ribbons: Use pasta wheel to cut 1/2 in. wide "scalloped" strips; use craft knife to cut 1 1/2 and 1 in. wide strips. Position strips on cakes, weaving over and under other strips across cake top. Pipe tip 1 scrolls in one direction only on 1 and 1 1/2 in. strips; add tip 1 dots and edge with tip 1 scallops.
Attach fondant bow loops to round fondant base with melted candy in cut disposable bag; let set. At reception: stack cakes off-center and position bow on top.
*Note: The top tier is often saved for the first anniversary. The number of servings given does not include the top tier.
**Note: Store in a dark place before reception to avoid fading.
Nothing says "celebrate" like a cake topped with a lush fondant bow. While the bow looks intricate, it's really just a grouping of fondant strips, folded, wrapped and arranged to create a full effect. When you cut strips with the Fondant Ribbon Cutter/ Embosser, you can create bows with stripes or beaded edge embossed designs. Or place fondant on Imprint Mat and roll over one time to imprint design.
Add subtle textures to fondant using our Fondant Ribbon Cutter/Embosser. This easy-to-use tool imprints elegant designs as it cuts fondant strips in a variety of widths and also imprints a beaded edge or textured striping. It's another great way to add a beautiful dimensional look to fondant cakes.
