About half the size of a dime, Forget-Me-Nots can be grouped on cake tops or used to accent smaller treats like petits fours. They grow naturally in blue, pink and white.

Make a simple, versatile leaf to add realistic details to flowers. Leaf tips can also be used to make simple flowers, such as sunflowers.

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.

Ride With Pride Cake is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake this past weekend for my sister's shower. First time using color flow and first time covering a cake with fondant... The color flow is tricky. I tried it a couple of weeks in advance to get a feel for it and I'm glad I did. The consistency is key and don't be afraid to add water to get the right feel (but do it in very small quantities). My first try was with the exact recipe and it was way too stiff for the size 2 tip. My hands were shaking trying to get the right pressure and I ended up with shaky lines. I thinned it out for my 2nd attempt and it gave much better results. I also turned this into a 2-tier cake in order to get the servings I needed. Everyone loved it. It's a beautiful design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cake was absolutely beautiful! But this was my first try at colorflow and frankly, I struggled. First attempt I was very leary of adding more water to the icing because the instructions were so precise (1 Tbls + 1tsp). Made it seem like a science experiment to me. Tip 1 was impossible, so I used tip 2. I didn't get enough volumn for the pillowing effect. Following weekend, after showing first efforts to my Wilton instructor, tried again, only using a tip 3 and not being afraid to add more water. All in all, in both attempts, I made 6 sets of mothers and carriages (3 each attempt with #2 much better results). Broke 2 mothers right away so was nervous that I was left with just 1 more "good" one. But she lasted all the way through the shower - broke as we were cleaning up. Not sure I would be quick to do colorflow again, but it was fun to take my time and try it different ways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for a friend's daughter. For the most part, this cake is very simple and easy. However, the Color Flow is a bit tricky to work with. This was my first experience with Color Flow, and although it was VERY stressful, particularly on the way to the baby shower, it turned out beautifully! I highly recommend taking the color flow with you in a bag that's ready to pipe in case you have to fix any breakage! The Color Flow is a very delicate piece. I think if I did it again, I'd use a larger tip for the border, and only use the small tip on the delicate areas like the fingers. I think it would make it a little thicker and a little more sturdy.
