Brilliant pinwheels. They look just like pretty fabric. Take that, gloomy winter!

This is sooo cute! And so much easier than I would have ever thought. I'm not sure I have a direct need for a cake like this at the moment but I kind of want to make it anyway for fun! Cute!

Jenn (Cookies Cupcakes and Cardio)

Such a cute idea! I'm looking forward to trying this soon...great step by step, clear, tutorial!


Wow this cake is so pretty and so elaborate!

yummy supper

Stephanie, Every time you bust out with one of your crafty creations, I am blown away! You are the master of the gum paste:) So cool.

These are absolutely 100% adorable. I really love your patience and talent with your gum and sugar paste constructions; your end products are always so wonderful! The pinwheels were a great idea and so deliciously simple (even a talentless decorating hack like me could probably do it :D)! I think my favorite are the small flowers...they remind me a bit of my mom with her occasional quilting and bigger cross-stitching habits. :)

I love this tutorial! Such a cute idea. I really need to start playing around with gumpaste and fondant, it looks like fun.


ohmygoodness... how adorable is that?!? What a great idea! I love the overhead shot of them all laying out to dry... SO pretty all together. I want to try this, but perhaps I'll start with paper and work my way up ;) Hope you see some "true spring" outdoors, soon! :)

Jessica @ bake me away!

This is so whimsical! With your tutorial, it doesn't look very difficult either. I love the colors you chose for this.

Just got back from vacation and am catching up with my blogroll over coffee... WOW. This is totally the cure for blah weather. Adorable.

PS - Love the concept sketches! I thought I was the only one who did things like that!

Jess [tenpenny splendid]

These are gorgeous! I love the ones with the flowers painted on.. they look like fabric! I need to find a reason to make these! :)

Julia {The Roasted Root}

hey there! This is my first time visiting your site and I am amazed at your pinwheel cake. I am SO bad with fondant...actually I'm pretty bad with all frostings but seeing these beatutiful fondant creations makes me think I really need to start working on my skills. Creative and adorable!

Thanks very much, I have learned a lot from your post. Well done, really!


This is a really good post… Must admit that you are amongst the best bloggers I have read… Thanks………..?


Could you just use your marshmallow fondant to make the pinwheels? Or do you need it to be true fondant/gumpaste/sugar paste? I'm trying to make this gluten free/dye free so I'd love to be able to use your marshmallow fondant if I can to make the pinwheels!!

THANK YOU this is AWESOME!! :)
