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)
Small leaf cutter
And these are the instructions:
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.
Use a circle cutter to cut out one piece in each color.
Arrange them vertically, as shown in this picture…
Start rolling from the top to the bottom, while applying pressure in the middle.
Keep rolling the center until it becomes really thin.
Then, cut off the little “rope” in the center with a knife.
You will end up with two little flowers.
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.
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.
And you are done!
Let these pieces dry overnight and then use them to decorate your cupcakes.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
Happy caking everyone!
