Hi guys

I would like to make something similar to this cake for my daughter's birthday.

http://www.tonyastaab.com/2010/05/daisies-...s-daisies-.html

It says she has made the Daisies following a Wilton course, but the link is broken. I can't find this daisy on the Wilton page. Does anyone know which mold or cut-out she has used?

Also, would you only cover the bottom of the cake in the yellow fondant? I was thinking a white mud with white ganache.

Thanks for your help

The link on the "mini daisy cupcakes" page works. I've copied it for you here

It shows which Wilton things to use for the daisies.

I have a set of 3 little daisy fondant plungers which would work well for this.  I got mine from Kitchen warehouse for about $5.00.

I have also seen them at the Bake Boss shop and another local cake decorating store.

Very easy to use.

Good luck.

These daisies would be super easy to make. You just need a daisy cutter (doesn't have to be a plunger type). Roll out white fondant, cut, then use a small balling tool (pearl pin head would work) and draw down each petal from the centre to the tip on a foam mat. Allow to dry on some dimpled foam to keep some shape, then glue a little ball of yellow fondant in the centre.
It's time consuming but easy.
