Brush backs with water and attach ten to alternating petal divisions. For each remaining division, roll out fondant thin and cut a 4 x 6 1/2 in.rectangle. Using Cutter/Embosser with ridged wheel and plastic ruler, imprint criss-cross diagonal lines 1/2 in. apart. Attach to cake with water, trimming to fit as needed.
For bottom borders, roll 2 fondant ropes approximately 1/4 in. diameter and twist together. Trim to lengths needed and attach separately to petal sections with water. Roll 1 in. diameter fondant balls and attach to border at petal divisions. Insert carriage.
Give your cake a great quilted look by embossing lines in a lattice pattern. Use the single-wheel Cutter/Embosser to create the imprinted lines. It?s a textured look that?s perfect for baby or garden-themed cakes.
