Fondant Calla Lilies
The cake used is the bakery cake recipe HERE.
Fondant is homemade marshmallow fondant found HERE, just using strawberry marshmallows for the pink color.
To form the calla lilies I used the Wilton heart cookie cutter and plastic cone set. Roll white fondant out and cut in heart shape, soften and thin edges using a roller or wooden stick. Form around cone and let dry. You can moisten the edge to help stick but be careful not to get inside wet or it will stick to cone.
Color some of the fondant yellow and some green, cut a small green circle and then cut it in half to form the green bottom of flower.
Roll the yellow into a long oval and cover in colored sugar. Let these dry along with any leaves, stems etc. Flower pieces dried over night.
Then roll out pink fondant and cover cake.
Decorate with remaining icing and place dried flowers on top.
