Step 1

Make fondant flowers two days in advance. Use fondant roller with blue guide rings to roll out white gum paste 1/16 in. thick. Use smallest rose cutter from gum paste flower cutter set to cut 10 petals. Use large ball tool from fondant set and foam to ruffle petal edges. Roll two balls, each 1/2 in. diameter and use damp brush to attach overlapping petals. Flatten gum paste balls slightly and use damp brush to attach to flower centers. Place in flower formers to dry, about 48 hours.

Step 2

Cover cake base with fondant one day in advance. Use fondant roller with orange guide rings to roll out 14 oz. white fondant 1/8 in. thick. Cover base with white fondant. Reserve remaining white fondant.

Prepare, fill and stack on cake circles 6 in. cakes for 3-layer cake, 5 in. high and 8 in. cakes for 3-layer cake, 5 in. high (trim one layer to 1 in. high). Use spatula and icing to ice cake lightly.
