OTHER ITEMS NEEDED FOR CREATING THESE REALISTIC FAIRIES
These fairy wings will not deteriorate or spoil so order ahead and save on shipping costs. (But after piping gel has been added,only a month, they may begin cracking.) You can use these fairy wings on doll cakes or make cute gumpaste fairies (see inst. below). Piping gel adds strength and will add the needed 'waxy' look for many of them. You DO need piping gel if you intend to sprinkle the edible glitter on them.
OTHER ITEMS YOU MIGHT WANT, FOR CREATING WAFER PAPER LEAVES-click the links for these products
CLEAR PIPING GEL #76-2011:  spread very thinly over the sheet, let dry overnight. Cut out leaves using fine cuticle scissors. The piping gel prevents the wafer paper from cracking while cutting.
EDIBLE GLITTER 1/4 oz. clear #78-600W:
Very fine. Sprinkle over finished leaves to make it come alive.
FOOD PENS USED TO OUTLINE AND FILL IN
You would outline with the fine end and color in using the thicker end. We recommend the dual end pens for this.
PRINTED USING DEDICATED PRINTER
If you want to print these from a computer, you will need the printer these food coloring cartridges fit into. You will need to purchase the printer at your local office store. But substitute their ink cartridges to ours filled with food coloring.
SOFTWARE I USE FOR RESIZING, ALTERING AND TILE PRINTING
Tile print means you need only one and the software will put as many on the sheet as will fit according to sizes.
EDIBLE WAFER PAPER NEEDED TO PRINT THESE ON
Use the thin, plain white sheets.

INSTRUCTIONS
These leaves will not deteriorate or spoil at all. (But after piping gel has been added, if kept several months, they may begin cracking.) You can use these leaves alone, with icing flowers, or with your realistic gum paste flowers....its faster than making them from gum paste too! The piping gel  adds strength and will add the needed 'waxy' look for many of them. You DO need piping gel if you intend to sprinkle the edible glitter on them.
  1. Spread Clear piping Gel thinly over the print. A small angled spatula works best for this. I don't advise using a brush because you can't spread the piping gel thin enough.
  2. Let them dry for a short time...2-6 hours. If piping gel is spread too thick, they won't dry for days!
  3. If you dry them too long...2-3 weeks, they may crack. But it would be okay to wait and cut them within a day or two.
  4. Using very thin-bladed or cuticle scissors, cut them out.

shows a wing closer up
As a clarification, on the Tinkerbell cake, the cake is iced in green buttercream and smoothed. The wings on Tinkerbell are the original ones from the doll, to keep the doll in tact. The wings on the blue Woodland doll were hand painted wtih luster dusts and alcohol. From Becky

Attach wings with icing onto the back of the doll cake. They are light as feathers and will hold.

I have no notes for cake at left and don't know where it came from. Must be no larger than 8". Anyway, I see they iced cake with green rolld fondant. Then sat the rose in place and added the fairy.
There is a GRAND fairies book. You might find it online. I found mine at a flea market very cheap. Title "THE COMPLETE BOOK OF THE FLOWER FAIRES" By Cicely Mary Barker
"FAIRIES PLAYING"

This cake shows several examples of what you can do with rolled fondant and gumpaste and fairies!.

The cake is 12 x 18-inch covered with rolled fondant icing.

                          INSTRUCTIONS:

  • The fairies are formed from gum paste on thread-fine wires (available in a craft store and may be on a spool.). 
  • Their ‘hair’ is royal icing. They were dressed in gum paste clothes. The fairies’ ‘wings’ are made of plain gelatin on a fine wire frame-shape, tinted with food coloring, let dry, remove wire frame, and fasten to the fairy with a dab of royal icing. 
  • WINGS: 1/4 cup cold water and 2 teaspoons plain gelatin, food coloring. Form an armature (wing form) of the fine wire. Dip into the mixture like blowing bubbles. Lay out and let dryy. You can leave the wire on. Or if you feel lucky, remove it.
OTHER DECORATIONS
  • The rocks are pieces of fondant, marbled. Put 2-3 colors together and twist.
  • The colorful ‘path’ is flat pieces of fondant coated with special dust using egg white so it adheres.
  • All the flowers are gumpaste on fine flower stamens for stems.
  • All the ‘gold’ has been painted with a mixture of gold petal dust mixed with a dab of cooking oil.
  • Lace points were made with tip #00 and dries ahead of time.
  • Curtains and lace work at bottom of cake are tip #00 and egg white royal icing. (Combine only egg white and conf. sugar and beat with a fork until it stands in peaks. No water)
  • This cake is the result of my studies with Angela Priddy of South Africa. Angela has a wonderful book showing some really innovative ideas using gum paste and other fine mediums. Regretably this book is out of print and I can't even find it on ebay or amazon.com.
