I’m making my first wedding cake for a family wedding this friday – all very exciting! And I thought I’d show you a tutorial for making a simple fondant flower.
For these flowers, I used two different sized petal cutters
I often get asked how I find the time to bake and decorate cakes with 3 little kids and my answer is generally the same. 1: I am incredibly lax with my house cleaning, and 2: I love trashy tv and generally make things whilst watching it. For example, the night I was making these flowers, I was also watching Bachelor Pad…
Start by gluing 2 petals onto each other at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock (using edible glue or water)
halfway between 1 and 2 o’clock
halfway between 7 and 8 o’clock
halfway between 4 and 5 o’clock
halfway between 10 and 11 o’clock
Place some polystyrene under each petal and then glue the 4 smaller petals at 12 o’clock, 6 o’clock, 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock.
For the centre of the flowers, I’ve rolled out some tiffany blue coloured fondant and stuck on some tiny silver balls. You could obviously use any colour for the centre, but the wedding cake is going to be in tiffany blue.
You could also pipe on some dots using coloured royal icing.
