Hints & Tips
Always read the project sheet in full before starting your cake!
To make your own modelling paste, add a little tylo to your fondant.
Allow the modelling paste shapes to sit and firm up for a short time before attaching to your cake.
If your modelling paste is sticking to your tools or mat use your FMM Dab-a-Dust for dusting with cornflour or icing sugar.
TO MAKE THE COT
(PREPARE 48 HOURS IN ADVANCE) Roll out the white flower paste/gum paste. Cut out the cot panels and leave to dry for 24 hours. Once completely dry assemble as per cot instructions.
TO MAKE THE ROSES
Roll out pink modelling paste and cut out 21 large roses and 3 small roses using the decorating strips from the FMM Gift Tag Cutter set. Roll out white modelling paste and cut out 1 small white rose using the small decorating strip. Sit to one side to dry off a little.
TO MAKE THE ROSE LEAVES
Roll out green modelling paste and cut out 5 small leaves and 32 large leaves using the decorating strip. Pinch the bottom of each leaf to give it shape. Sit to one side to dry off a little.
