I started out with this mold by Silli Creations
425191_257087687709467_795802358_n
make a thick piece of fondant as big as the mold, make two prints out of the mold and also make two piecies of fondant for the filling of the pillow
424016_257087704376132_100002247126343_588832_1353661088_n
put one filling on the flat square
418172_257087717709464_100002247126343_588833_766983801_n
put one print on top of it
423815_257087734376129_100002247126343_588834_218857134_n
flip it over
418423_257087751042794_100002247126343_588835_931597199_n
and do the same on the other side. put your filling on top of the square
423853_257087771042792_100002247126343_588836_911008382_n
and put your mold on top of it again. dont bother if the sides are not even on all sides because

were gonna play with a crimper over here ;)

just go along all sides and crimp the sides together, becareful not to break it off the little pillow
431348_257087831042786_100002247126343_588839_7715082_n
I prepared a drum with my own designed and created wrinklemold and put a black ribbon on the sides. put a little icing in the middle on the cakedrum. place the little pillow on top of it an stick a little cocktailstick in it for a bit more stability. paint it a little not too precisely. it has to look old silver ;)

just take a styrofoam egg if you want it to last forever or carve a cake into an eggshape if you realy want to eat it. This time I used a styro because it is a window piece for a dutch cakeshop
420644_257088087709427_100002247126343_588842_1254723597_n
cover it with fondant which looks very hard to do, but in reality it is not so scary. just easy but precisely begin as if it was just a little globe shape cake. underneath carve the remains of the fondant away and smoother it as much as possible with a piece of fondant and also with your hands. your hand wil melt the most wrinkles away. as you can see my agg has little wrinkels. well he, whos perfect? dont bother if you had a little bit of wrinkles also. we are going to decorate it heer it is, plain covered in fondant. it does not look so bad, does it? heer it is, plain covered in fondant. it does not look so bad, does it?
424145_257088117709424_100002247126343_588844_56573009_n
now place the egg over the little coacktail stick (toothpick) and to be all secured just stick a longer satay stick through the whole piece and cut the remains off. well, just stick was a little bit too easy said. I used a hammer for this
432081_257088147709421_100002247126343_588845_1612035636_n
next step I took the FMM Master Mold Lace and created the border on the bottom of the egg and painted it as wel.
423303_257088201042749_100002247126343_588846_628694689_n
at that point I created a little roseornament border with an other mold by Silly Creations (which is a 2 component silicone paste to create your own molds by the way)
425616_257088211042748_100002247126343_588847_203236278_n
then I took my own designed double flower mold and stuck two of them on top of the egg. paint it as U are because you can reach every part of it very good at this time, just not paint it all completely, remember it has to be old looking.
425214_257088231042746_100002247126343_588848_2014084398_n
on top of it. I create 3 little flowers with the large blossom punger cutter and a veiner. paint them as well. stick them with a little icing on top.
428293_257088254376077_100002247126343_588849_899345729_n
he next step is playing with a little flower wire. I mader 3 bows in a few different lengths. after that I created a guirlande with 3 pieces of again my double flowermold and place them in a switched pattern in place, fill in the eventualy gaps with again the blossom plunger but just 1 size smaller. and paint it all in one time. and last but not least as you can see on the completed egg, I put in 3 strings of white floral wire. I hope you like this tutorial. Im just a hobby baker but I gave it my best shot. I like the result and loved creating this chique easter egg. sorry for my poor english. my highschool was long long time ago
