Ingredients

Instructions

  • Bake cupcakes and allow them to cool completely.
  • Ice each cupcake smoothly with lemon icing.
  • Toss green sprinkles and keep aside.
  • Start off by dusting your work surface with powdered sugar. This will prevent the fondant from sticking to the surface.Now, make a small ball of yellow fondant.  
  • Roll out white fondant.
  • Use a large daisy cutter to cut out a piece.
  • Press the toothpick gently at the middle of each petal to give it a veined pattern.
  • Roll out yellow fondant.
  • Use a small circle cutter to cut out a piece.
  • Press the end of a toothpick on this circle horizontally and then vertically until you have a "criss-cross" pattern within the circle.
  • Brush some water at the center of the daisy.
  • Place the yellow circle in the center and press it with your fingers until it sticks into place.
  • If you want a simple flower with not too many petals, you can stop here but, if you want a more full flower, keep going.
  • Roll out white fondant and cut out another white flower.
  • Brush some water in the center.
  • Place the prepared daisy with the yellow center on top of this one. Press it gently until everything sticks together. 
  • If you like flat flowers (like the ones in my pictures), let them dry on a flat sheet of wax paper. If you want the petals to look more curved, place these flowers on a flower forming cup and let them dry overnight.
  • Place a flower on top of the each iced cupcake. Enjoy!
