What was your inspiration?
I too have seen these delicate fondant ruffles and loved them, but most of all I wanted to learn to make the cabbage roses. I was pleased to get both in one video class. Thank you Maggie Austin for a most enjoyable video class. Don't you just love Craftsy.com?
What are you most proud of?
Learning to make the cabbage rose. I had a serious accident 3 months ago and lost the tip of my index finger. I was not sure I would be able to do cakes after that. So lucky and so happy that I can still do what I love to do.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make your roses ahead. Decide on a color pallet before starting your project, color your fondant the day before so nothing slows you down once you start the ruffles. Then just have fun with it.
