The blue ombre frills remind me of the Cayman Islands and the ocean!

I realize the world’s most famous weather forecaster, Punxsutawney Phil, saw his shadow and declared six more weeks of Winter. I  however refuse to except that forecast! This winter has been insane, with my daughter’s university shutting down four times this year and the airports in D.C. closing for most of President’s day weekend. It is time to take action and think Spring!! I am going to start the Spring campaign with a Spring fondant frill mini cake tutorial. The frills are ombre with blue colour and adorned with match blue pansies.

Pansies generally bloom in early spring, which is why I chose to create a spray of pansies for the mini cakes.

This blue pansy garden was my inspiration for the sugar pansies! I changed the hue of the blue colour to match the cake!

 You will want to colour your ombre colors before you begin. I chose five monochromatic blue colours for the mini cakes.

Prior to frilling your cake cover them in fondant, I used a panel method for my mini cakes.

I painted each of the frill’s edge with silver lustre dust.
