Grandly celebrate 50 years of marriage. Formalize Square Pan cakes by using the vines press from our Decorator Favorites Pattern Press Set to imprint pretty motifs in curved panels cut from teal-tinted fondant.
Several days in advance: Make 40 curved panels, imprinted with vine pattern press by adding 2 teaspoons Gum-Tex? to 24 oz. White Rolled Fondant. Tint fondant in desired shade. Roll out 1/16 in. thick. Cut panels 2 1/2 in. wide x 4 in. high, or height of your cake. Lightly imprint vine pattern press on each panel, being careful not to cut through panels. Turn panels over and let dry in medium flower formers, away from direct fluorescent or natural light, at least 48 hours before decorating. When panels are dry, outline center stem of vine imprints with tip 3 and royal icing. Add tip 2 side stems and dot flowers. Let dry.
Also: Make 40 C-scrolls. Position pattern on cake board; cover with waxed paper. Using royal icing, outline pattern with tip 8, staying within pattern area to ensure correct size.
