How to make fondant pansies

Dear Mother Nature,

In case you didn’t get the memo, I am here to remind you that it’s officially “Spring.”
So, I would like to see warmer temperatures as soon as possible. Thanks!

From,
A gal who really wants to pack away her winter jacket.

Yes! That’s how I am feeling at the moment.

I want to see flowers BLOOMING, feel the cool spring BREEZE against my face, sit in the balcony with my little one and hear birds CHIRPING…

Since mother nature is not on my side…I have decided to get YOU and MYSELF in the mood for Spring by making these edible PANSIES Laughing

I know there are many pansy cutters in the market. 

But why spend money on them when you can make pansies using BASIC cutters? Wink

My TUTORIAL at CakeJournal will show you how to make these gorgeous pansies using SIMPLE CUTTERS that you probably have at home…

I used them as cupcake toppers on my favorite vanilla cupcakes, topped off with buttercream swirls!

Now, don’t just sit here. Hop on over to CakeJournal for my TUTORIAL Smile

Until next time, tata my lovelies!

    Oh my goodness gracious those are seriously the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen! I wish I liked fondant more. I think it is beautiful but I hate the taste!

    Absolutely stunning! I will definitely be attempting these. A couple of questions though, the title is for fondant pansies but the instructions are to use gum paste? Is gum paste edible and is there a recipe for home made?

    @ Anna… here are the answers:
    – I have made these flowers with fondant, gumpaste and even 50/50. Fondant takes the longest to dry (a few days) and we can’t roll it as thin as gumpaste. Use whatever you are comfortable with and whatever you think you can control the best.
    – I use Wilton’s store-bought gumpaste. So, I am sorry I don’t have a homemade recipe. I do have a recipe for homemade marshmallow fondant though: http://cakewhiz.com/post/How-to-make-marshmallow-fondant.aspx
    – As for whether gumpaste is edible or not, some people say yes and some people say no…lol. I use it for decoration purposes on cakes and inform the guests that the flowers are made with gumpaste. Some people choose to eat eat them and some people don’t. I haven’t had anyone get sick from eating gumpaste… hehe
    Hope I helped :)

    Thank you so much for your reply. I was planning on trying fondant for the first time with my Christmas baking this year but alas I ran out of time. I hope to try it soon. Your site has really inspired me and your work is amazing. Thank you for sharing.
