Cut 28 flowers in each color using medium Cut-Out. Cut five flowers in each color using small Cut-Out; place on thick foam and cup centers using ball tool from set. Make extras to allow for breakage.

These tiny cupped flowers can accent any dessert-just add buttercream to make a pretty center.

To create a variety of curved shapes, use both sides of Flower Formers to dry leaves. You can also add a colorful flair to leaves by brushing them with a mix of clear vanilla and icing color or use pearl dust and brush color onto leaves.
