Basic steps to making a fondant flower . I apologize for the poor quality photos. It was hard to take pictures & work with the fondant at the same time.
First roll your colored fondant out to about 1/8" thick
Using your fondant or gumpaste cutter, cut out the petalsNext place the petal on the fondant foam. Use your baller to thin the edges of the petal. The fondant will curve as you do this.Go all the way around the edge of the petalAttach the petals to your cupcake or cake by pressing them in to the buttercream until you get to the center.
