The scissors & crochet hook are made out of fondant. I painted silver pearl dust on both to give the appearance of metal. I have a "how to" tutorial here
Birthday girls name is Joy so I used a sharp object and wrote her name on the crochet hook
Frost cake with a crumb coat
Pipe a straight line with tip #47 (mine doesn't look so straight but it doesn't have to be perfect)
My frosting is soft because it contains no crisco...all butter so I have to work fast or the butter melts in my piping bag. If you use crisco your basket will pipe out better than mine.
make your cross bars and mark the spacing by placing a little bit of frosting in between
Pipe your next line
then do cross bars..and continue around until you make it all the way around the cake
Happy Birthday Joy!
..looking foward to celebrating her brithday with her & can't wait to see her face
when she see's her cake.
