Spanish Garden Tiles

Add some Spanish flair with this step by step fondant technique tutorial!

  • Gum Paste
  • Cutting mat
  • Ruler
  • Craft knife
  • Petal dust: daffodil, cocoa, royal blue
  • Paintbrushes: 000 and medium round head brush
  • Paint palette
  • Vodka
  • Edible glue
  • Fondant covered cake board in your chosen grout color


Let's Get Started:


  • Cut your desired number of tiles to 1 1/8th inches square (3 cm).


  • Using the medium sized brush, dust the outer edges of your tiles to ‘age’ them.


  • Mix royal blue petal dust with a small amount of vodka and start to paint on your tile pattern using the 000 brush. You can use any deign here, but a continuous pattern will give you the best effect.


  •  Once your tiles are dry, apply them to your fondant covered board with a small amount of edible glue. Leave a small gap between each tile for the fondant grout to show through.
  • Keep in mind: These tiles can be made in any size and shape. I also used very small tiles which I painted Royal Blue to fill the center of my cake board and to go around the inside of my fountain.
