  • Bake cupcakes and allow them to cool completely.
  • Make icing and tint it with gel colors if you like.
  • Pipe a swirl of frosting on top of each cupcake. Keep aside.
  • Roll out yellow gum paste. Use an oval cutter to cut out 4 yellow pieces. Use a heart cutter to cut out 1 heart piece.
  • Place the oval pieces on a foam pad. Press the leaf veiner on top of each piece until the leaf pattern transfers over.
  • Place the heart piece on the foam pad.Press the leaf veiner on top of it until the leaf pattern transfers over.
  • Use the balling tool to thin out the edges of the heart piece until it looks a little ruffled.
  • Use the balling tool again to thin out the edges of all the oval pieces.
  • Brush blue petal dust on the bottoms of 2 oval pieces and 1 heart piece.
  • On the pieces that you just brushed with petal dust, use a black edible marker to draw lines only halfway.
  • It's time to assemble all the pieces now: Arrange the petals in a circular formation. Stick the piece together by brushing some corn syrup in the center.
  • Roll out a small ball of yellow fondant and stick it in the center of the flower.
  • Also, make 2 small yellow gum paste loops and stick them around the center of the flower.
  • Now, place this flower on a flower forming cup and let it dry overnight or until it hardens.
  • Make more of these flowers and then, stick them on top of your iced cupcakes. Enjoy!
