In advance: Make flowers. Knead 1/4 teaspoon Gum-Tex into 3 oz. fondant. Roll out 1/16 in. thick. Cut approximately 115 flowers using apple blossom cutter from Flower Making Set. Place flowers on thick foam and cup centers with rounded end of modeling stick from set. Let dry. Add tip 2 dot centers in royal icing.
Also: Make bow loops. Knead 1 teaspoon Gum-Tex into 10 oz. fondant. Roll out 1/8 in. thick. Cut 15-18 strips, 1 1/4 x 7 in.. Brush ends with Fondant Adhesive and pinch together to form loop. Set on sides on cornstarch-dusted surface and let dry for 2-3 days. Assemble bow following instructions.
Prepare 2-layer cakes for
rolled fondant by lightly icing with buttercream. Prepare cakes for
Stacked Construction, positioning 12 in. cake on 14 in. plate. Cover cakes with fondant; smooth with Fondant Smoother. Assemble cakes. Attach 38 in. of ribbon around bottom border of 12 in. cake, securing with double-stick tape. Repeat for bottom border of 8 in. cake, using 26 in. of ribbon.
Imprint scrolls above ribbon using small c-scroll pattern press, spacing 1/4 in. apart. Cover imprints with tip 3 outline; add tip 3 dot and teardrop design for each scroll. Pipe tip 3 bead bottom borders; attach flowers with dots of icing. Position bow on cake top.
*The smallest tier is often saved for the first anniversary. The number of servings given does not include the smallest tier.
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.
This 5-petal springtime flower, most commonly seen in white or soft pink, is virtually the
same petal shape as the wild rose, but uses a smaller tip creating a petite flower. The
dot stamen are typically positioned like the holes in a 5-hole button. Dry them on flower
formers for a more natural look.

I love the look and the level of Difficulty it took to make this cake.
I just recently designed and made the wedding cake, for my wedding coming up in July 2011. It is 3 tiered, but I have had no level of training for cake
decorating. I tried this idea of copying this cake, just too see if I could do it.
It took some time, but it turned out fabulous.
