And here are the steps:


Step 1:
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.

Step 2:
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!
