black and pink FONDANT (last time it was gumpaste, make sure you use fondant this time)

If your fondant is a bit stiff put it in the microwave for a few seconds to warm it up, then knead. Roll out your black fondant and cut thin strips, making sure they measure at least 9 inches. Remember to use a ruler and a fondant/pizza cutter to help with precision.
Pick up one strip at a time and brush the back with a small amount of water, making it sticky. Make sure you don’t use too much or your fondant will slide off.
Roll out your pink fondant and cut out stars with your cookie cutter. Paint the back with water and place in the middle of the cake. Start at the front of your cake and place three stars to one side and then 3 to the other. Continue on both sides until you reach the back. Use this technique just in case your stars don’t meet exactly right in the back.
