Bring out the color of your Sugar Sheets! flowers with a few brushstrokes of Wilton Pearl Dust or Color Dust. Use a contrasting shade to highlight the flower center or on petal edges.

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.
