Rated 5 out of 5 by brandeanne from I've used these little flowers as accents on several cakes. I've also used this basic techniques w/large flower shaped cookie cutters to make fondant flowers to use as a cupcake topper. For my niece's second bday, I made large bright pink flowers w/bright yellow centers and alphabet cookie cutters to spell out Happy Birthday in bright yellow. I also made these small fondant flowers in both pink and yellow. Each cupcake had chocolate icing w/either a big flower, several small flowers, or a letter adorning it. The dark brown, bright yellow, bright pink color scheme looked fantastic & cupcakes are sooo easy for kid's bday parties :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by kathybaker from When searching for a classic decoration, I came across the Blossom Flowers. It is both easy and quick. I have used this on both fun kids cakes and adult upscale cakes and have recieved rave reviews for both. Classic colors such as white and/or black makes for a stunning cake. On the flip side using fun bright multi-colors makes for a whimsical look. When I run out of the flower drying cups, I use egg cartons to rest my prepared blossoms in while drying. Also, instead of making an entire batch of royal icing just to dot the center of the blossom, I use the buttercream frosting I am already using on my cake. Try this simple technique, you will love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by binkbink from This is one of my favorite flowers to make! They are so easy my 12yr old makes them for me. I make these ahead of time and keep them in a drawer, they are handy for borders on cakes, to place on cupcakes and just to fill in bare spots on cakes. Usually after making a cake if I have a small about of fondant left over I will use it to make these flowers and store them for later, they keep very well in tissue lined boxes or drawers. After I roll out my fondant I let it sit for a few minutes uncovered before "cutting" the shape out, I find that this keeps the piece from tearing or stretching so much. I don't make a lot of royal icing so I usually just make the center dot with buttercream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by becakes from I use these flowers all the time on cakes, cupcakes and petit fours. I use coke cans turned upside down to put my flower in to dry. Just wipe the bottom of the can off, and sprinkle a little cornstarch/confectioner's sugar mixture so flower will not stick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jefiner00 from These are so simple and helpful. I make alot of these in different colors and save them. They can add a little decoration to a cake your working on that's missing something, or even cover up imperfections.
