Cake Circles

Cake Circles

The Shell is the most popular icing technique of all. It's the basis for many borders, fleurs de lis and more. Lift the tip only slightly when piping to avoid a bumpy look.

These quick and easy fondant flowers can be placed on your cake right after you roll them. Roses can be made in a variety of sizes. Position alone on a mini sweet treat, in groupings or as a border, then add fondant or buttercream leaves to create a full bouquet.

A ruffle can be gently flowing or tightly gathered as shown here. To create a softer looking ruffle, after cutting your fondant section, roll the ball tool, dipped in cornstarch, along one edge.
