  1. Make fondant flowers. Roll fondant into 1/16 in., 1/8 in., 3/16 in. and ¼ in. balls for flowers (each flower requires five balls of the same size to form petals). Use smaller ball to form center of each flower. Make enough fondant balls to form at least 36 flowers. Store fondant in plastic bag to prevent drying.

    Arrange balls of same size in flower shape, pushing together lightly to form flower. Use damp brush to adhere fondant together. Using ball tool, lightly indent center of flower. Using craft knife, make small indent in center of each ball, about 2/3 of the way to the top. Make smaller line on either side of middle line. Using damp brush, attach smaller fondant ball in center of each flower. Continue until all flowers are formed.

  2. Bake cake. Prepare cake batter following recipe instructions. Bake and cool two cake layers. Level, fill and stack for 4 in. high cake. Ice cake smooth.
  3. Decorate cake. Attach flowers around base of cake, about 1 in. from bottom, alternating sizes and space between flowers.
