Roll thin strips of Ivory Satin Ice fondant on a textured board to achieve quilted pattern. (Ron uses a Lucite florescent lighting cover.)

Using the quilted pattern as a guide, apply the blossoms in a Swiss dot pattern.

Roll Blue Satin Ice fondant and cut into strips. Moisten the edges with water, place a wire or a skewer, fold the ends and fasten while cinching into a loop. Let loops dry sideways.

Prepare two tails & a small strip for the knot. Those will be applied to the cake while still flexible.
