As those were sitting, I put on “Grey’s Anatomy” and made my flowers with the supplies from the Wilton Gum Paste and Fondant Student Kit.
But it was totally worth it!
To shape the flat flowers, place the cut out in your hand and then using the fondant ball toolgently press into the center of the smaller flowers. For the larger flowers, flatten the petal edges carefully and watch the flower create a bowl effect. Don’t press too hard and stretch the fondant or make it too thin.
Gently dust on some shimmer color with a dry paint brush. You don’t want to color the flower, just give it a shimmery look.
Use a small drop of corn syrup in the center to attach a white sugar pearl. They should dry while you’re doing all the other ones. There is no rush. They can sit out overnight if you don’t have time to decorate them.
To attach the flowers, just add a touch of wet chocolate and place the flowers. The fondant stays soft. There is not gumpaste to make the flowers hard. They will bend or break if you stack these up or lay them down on the flower.
