Cupped Flowers

These little blossoms can go anywhere–on vines, as a side garland or on wires as part of a cake top bouquet. Make them ahead of time and let them dry in a pretty cupped shape


Step 1: Roll Out Fondant

Roll out fondant 1/8 in. thick on Roll & Cut Mat lightly dusted with cornstarch. Cut flowers using Cut-Outs, cookie cutters or gum paste cutters. Transfer flowers one at a time to thin foam. Use ball tool from Confectionery Tool Set to soften edges by gently moving tool on edge of petal.

Step 2: Transfer

Transfer each flower to thick foam. Use ball tool or dog bone tool to form a cupped shape by depressing tool in center of flower.

Step 3: Let Dry

Let flowers dry in flower formers dusted with cornstarch or in Candy Melting Plate sections. Add a tip 2 dot center using buttercream or royal icing or add a small ball of fondant for center.
