How to Make Simple Fondant Blossoms
These simple-to-make fondant blossoms are a quick and easy way to add a handmade touch to cupcakes or a simple cake. Roll your fondant thinly, use our easy-to-use blossom cutter set to stamp out the flowers and then dry them in a flower former. Voila, you're done. Add a sparkly center or some dust to finish or dress them up how you like.
STEP 1: ROLL FONDANT AND CUT OUT BLOSSOMS
On a surface lightly coated with powdered sugar, roll the fondant very thin, approximately 1/8" thick, and cut out the blossoms. Sometimes it helps to press the cutter into the fondant and then shake it back and forth a little bit to get a really clean edge on your blossom.
If you want really delicate flowers, place the cut out pieces on a foam pad and soften with a ball tool. You can skip this step if you don't mind a chubbier flower.
STEP 2: SOFTEN WITH A BALL TOOL
Use a Ball Modeling Tool to soften the petals of each blossom and to give them a more delicate appearance.
STEP 3: PLACE IN A FLOWER FORMER TO DRY
Place the blossoms in a flower former and gently press them into the cavities with the Ball Tool to give them a cupped shape.
STEP 4: ADD POWDERED COLOR FOR EFFECT
Use a paintbrush and Powdered Food Coloring to apply color to the center of the blossoms. Shake off any excess powder. Use colored royal icing to pipe a center in each blossom or pipe a dot of piping gel and dip in colored non pareils for a more textured center. You can also roll a small ball of fondant for the flower center and adhere it with a dab of water.
