1 day in advance: Make flowers. Knead 2 teaspoons Gum-Tex into 24 oz. white fondant; roll out 1/8 in. thick. Make 135 ribbon roses using strips 3/4 in. x 8 in. Let dry 24 hours on cornstarch-dusted boards.
Roll out white fondant 1/8 in. thick. Using punch with insert, cut 13 ovals for 6 in. cake, 21 for 10 in. cake and 30 for 14 in. cake. Attach at bottom borders with damp brush. Use baroque mold to make small white paisley heart accents; attach to ovals with damp brush. Using tip 2, edge ovals with piping gel; attach sugar pearls. Paint edges of ribbon roses with ruby red Pearl Dust/lemon extract mixture; attach around base of each round and on mini ball cake with tip 5 dots of icing.
A timeless and versatile technique, the ribbon rose can elevate the look of any cake or treat. Ribbon roses can be made in many sizes for variation. They can be used as simple cake decorations and also to dress up cupcakes.
