How to Make Rainbow Flower Cupcake Toppers

rainbow flower cupcake toppers

These rainbow flowers are fun and colorful and a great way to use up your leftover fondant.

You only need ONE cutter to make them! 😀

I used them to decorate these chocolate cupcakes but I think you can use them to decorate the top of a cake too.

Anyways, to make these rainbow flower toppers, you will need the following supplies:

Various colors of fondant (I used the following colors: pink, yellow, green, orange, blue)
Circle cutter
Small leaf cutter
Rolling pin

And these are the instructions:

Step 1:
Prepare different colors of fondant.
Roll them out.

I only used 5 colors of fondant but you can use more colors, if you like. Just remember that the more colors you use, the wider your flower is going to be.

Step 2:
Use a circle cutter to cut out one piece in each color.

Step 6:
Then, cut off the little “rope” in the center with a knife.
You will end up with two little flowers.

Step 7:
If you want to make a bigger rainbow flower, repeat steps 1-3.
Then, start rolling from the top to the bottom, while applying pressure on the side.

You can also add tiny balls of fondant into each flower, if you like.

Step 9:
To make the leaves, just gather all your leftover fondant into a ball and roll it out.
Use a leaf cutter to cut out some pieces.
