Fondant Pinwheel Tutorial

Yesterday we went up north to our friends house for a barbeque.  She is a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, check out her work on her blog Stampin' Lab.   Her request was for Red, White & Blue cupcakes even though Independence Day was 4 months ago.    I love seeing pinwheels out of patterned paper so I thought I'd try making pinwheels out of fondant.   It was much easier than I thought & they came out great.

Fondant Pinwheel with royal icing center
you can use fondant for the center if you don't have any royal icing made

You will need:
Gumpaste Glue or vodka (I use vodka)
Square cutter
Rolling pin with pink spacers
paint brush

Roll Fondant #1
Cut a sqare with the square cutter
Repeat with Fondant #2
Place both squares together
Gently roll the 2 together in one direction

Cut the new multi color piece of fondant with the square cutter

Using your knife cut each corner leaving about 1/2" in the middle uncut (see below)
4 corners cut

Place some glue in the middle

Gently fold corner one into the middle & press with the end of your paintbrush to secure
apply glue to the center
Fold next corner in

Continue until all 4 corners are folded in

Place a drop of Royal icing or a ball of fondant in the center
Dry for 24 hours before putting on cupcakes or cake
