I realize the world’s most famous weather forecaster, Punxsutawney Phil, saw his shadow and declared six more weeks of Winter. I however refuse to except that forecast! This winter has been insane, with my daughter’s university shutting down four times this year and the airports in D.C. closing for most of President’s day weekend. It is time to take action and think Spring!! I am going to start the Spring campaign with a Spring fondant frill mini cake tutorial. The frills are ombre with blue colour and adorned with match blue pansies.
Pansies generally bloom in early spring, which is why I chose to create a spray of pansies for the mini cakes.

You will want to colour your ombre colors before you begin. I chose five monochromatic blue colours for the mini cakes.
Prior to frilling your cake cover them in fondant, I used a panel method for my mini cakes.
I painted each of the frill’s edge with silver lustre dust.

I would love to see your inspired fondant frill mini cakes and sugar pansies!
Wow just beautiful, I love the color!
Excellent instructions – as always – thank you for sharing. Try a piece of non stick matting under your cake it will help stop the cake from slipping around on its stand.
Leonie, thank you for the tip! I will try next time 🙂
Thank you so much for this tutorial. I loved it!

Mesmerizing color blends

Thank you, each mini cake is $6.00
Oooh Bobbie, thank you so very much for this tutorial, I have a beautiful wedding cake with very much larger frills coming up and your lesson has let me know that I can do this.
I am glad I could help, if you have any question don’t hesitate.
Can a used a ball tool instead of the back of the stick to frill the edge of the fondant? Thank you sharing your ideas
Yes a ball tool would work perfectly!
