Make Flowers of Varying Colors and Sizes

Use a clean kitchen knife or scissors to trim off excess fondant. Repeat the process and vary the size of the petals, fullness of blooms and shades of pink to create a variety of fondant roses to decorate your cake. (Pinch the edge of each petal with your fingertips to make it look more realistic.) Let flowers dry overnight in the fridge. Once dry and easier to handle, secure flowers onto the frosted cake with a dab of frosting.

Make Fondant Leaves

Use fondant leaf cutters to cut leaves out of green fondant.

Complete the Cake

Add leaves to frosted cake in between the flowers with dabs of frosting. Admire your handiwork!
