  • Step 1

    Bake and cover 2.5" x 2.5" cakes in white fondant. 

  • Step 2

    To create the blue woodland petite cake, use Bright Blue Fondant DecoShapes Strips. Using a knife & ribbon insertion tool, cut strips in half. Set aside one strip for the base of the cake. Use the other to create trapezoid shapes. 

  • Step 3

    To create the pink woodland petite cake, use Pastel Pink Fondant DecoShapes Strips. Cut strip into 1 inch squares and then cut in half to create a total of 6 triangles. Cut one strip in half for the base of the cake. 

  • Step 4

    To create the yellow woodland petite cake, use White Fondant DecoShapes Strips. Cut strips in half. Set aside one strip for the base of the cake. With the other, cut out 2 inch sections and create four arrows.

  • Step 5

    Start with the white fondant arrows and skinny strip. Airbrush golden yellow first, then golden brown to match the yellow fox cupcake ring. 

  • Step 6

    Airbrush fondant shapes and skinny strips with ivory shimmer to give them some shine.   

  • Step 7

    Add blue fondant shapes to the petite cake using clear piping gel. Top it with the yellow fox cupcake ring.

    Tip: Create a design that speaks to you and your theme!  

  • Step 8

    Add pink fondant shapes to the petite cake using clear piping gel. Top it with the pink deer cupcake ring.

  • Step 9

    Add airbrushed yellow fondant shapes to the petite cake using clear piping gel. Top it with the blue bunny cupcake ring.
