I think these cut-out flowers may possibly be the easiest flowers one can make using fondant or gum paste. Not to mention, they are perfect for those emergency moments where you end up with a last-minute cake or cupcake order with no time to make one of those extravagant flowers. So, give these a shot. All you need are flower shaped cookie cutters in three sizes (big, medium, small). I used the ones from Wilton.
Prepare three colors of fondant and roll them out. They can be rolled thin or thick ...whichever style you prefer (I personally like them a little thick). Use your cutters and cut out a piece from each color.
Now, you have a big cut-out, medium cut- out and a small, baby cut-out. Dip your brush in water and brush the centre of the big cut-out. Keep in mind that a little water goes a LONG way. So, don't pour tonnes of water or else your fondant will become extremely sticky and take forever to dry!
Place the medium cut out on top of the big cut out. Next, dip your brush in water again and brush the centre of this medium cut-out.
Place the baby cut-out on the medium one. Let the flower dry and you are done! See what I mean! that was easy... right? You can even try this same concept with different shapes of cutters and come up with out your own unique creations.
And here it is decorated on a cupcake.
