    To Make The Ivory Peony Christmas Cake

    • Follow the instructions on the FMM Peony cutter packet to make the peony. Use the Rainbow Dust Glitter Colour Jewel Bronze Sand for sparkle on the stamens. Paint the edges of the peony with rejuvenator fluid and the metallic ginger glow dust.
    • Roll out ivory modelling paste and cut out 3 chevrons. Allow them to dry off a little so they are easier to handle then attach to the cake with water.
    • Roll out ivory modelling paste very thin turn it over and cut out 5 petal rose cutter shape. Place on the FMM Firm Foam Former Pad and using the large end of your ball tool half on the petal and half on the pad ball the edge of your petal in smooth sweeping movements to thin the edges of the petals.
    • Allow to dry off a little. You will need approximately 30 of these to go around the bottom of the cake.
    • Mix together rejuvenator fluid and metallic ginger glow dust and paint the chevrons running up the cake.
    • Fold 5 petal rose flower petals in half and then in half again and lightly pinch the bottom. This will make a small ruffle. Wet the bottom of the cake and start to attach the ruffles. Once dry lightly paint some of the edges with a mixture of rejuvenator fluid and metallic ginger glow dust.
    • Push the posy pick in your cake and put a little ivory modelling paste inside it then slide the peony in to the posy pick. Position as illustrated in picture of cake.
