In advance: Tint portion of gum paste black using natural color fondant. Roll out black and white gum paste less than 1/16 in. thick. Make at least 9 daisies using large mum cutter for the black layer and small mum cutter for the white layer. Roll 1/8 in. diameter centers using neon pink fondant . Brush one side with gum glue adhesive and dip in pink sugar. Attach with gum glue adhesive. Make extras to allow for breakage and let dry in large flower forming cup.
Prepare and cover 2-layer round cake with rolled fondant; smooth with Fondant Smoother. Prepare a 50/50 fondant and gum paste blend. Roll out 1/8 in. thick and cut into 4 x 1/2 in. wide strips. Attach to cake with gum glue adhesive, leaving 1/2 in. between strips. Roll out neon pink fondant 1/4 in. thick. Cut circles using small round Cut-Out. Roll circles into balls and attach for bottom border with gum glue adhesive. Position daisies on a small piece of white fondant; attach to cake with gum glue adhesive.
Add subtle textures to fondant using our Fondant Ribbon Cutter/Embosser. This easy-to-use tool imprints elegant designs as it cuts fondant strips in a variety of widths and also imprints a beaded edge or textured striping. It's another great way to add a beautiful dimensional look to fondant cakes.

Made this for my daughters birthday.....she loved it :). Fairly easy to do, just a little time consuming.

I made this cake for my final Fondant Class offered at Michael's. It is a very beautiful cake and not difficult to make. The only time consuming part was placing the fondant strips on the side.

I made this cake as one of my final cakes in my Wilton course. I loved the colors and the daisies. I received so many compliments on my cake. I would make it again. I only put somewhat easy because of the time it took to make all the small little balls and the daisies. But I had a lot of fun making this :)
