DIY Fondant Roses

These roses are the cutest things that can be put atop a red velvet cupcake.  For fondant beginners or just for those who want a new varieties of decorations on their cupcake, this is great.  It’s super easy, quick, and really fun to make.

I made these roses with marshmallow fondant, which in my opinion, is so much tastier than store bought fondant.  Store bought fondant tastes artifical… and awfully gummy.  I think the best store bought brand is Wilton, and you can basically access that at any Craft Supply store, or Walmart!

Directions:

1.  Let your fondant out to room temperature on a powdered sugar dusted surface before anything else!  This softens the fondant and brings it to a workable consistency.  The powdered sugar prevents the fondant from sticking to your work surface which is so annoying.

2.  Once your fondant is at room temperature, take out a small chunk and roll it into a ball.

4.  Fold the piece of fondant in half, as shown. DSCN3265 DSCN32555. Folded side up, beging rolling the piece of fondant into a rose shape.  Make sure you don’t roll too lightly, or else the rose will fall apart!

Happy baking, and good luck!
