Fondant Daisy is rated out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by alex from Daisy is one of my favorites flowers, it is easy to make, with fondant is even easier then in royal icing; white or in different colors with a little pearl dust and/or colored sugar sprinkles I am happy of the way they come out. Every flower has a message to the world. The daisy tells us about innocence, loyalty, purity. The beauty, love and the hidden message of the flowers plus your love for flowers and people is what makes these decorating technics an art. I am really greatfull that I got the chance to learn these technics; it is a more subtle way to express myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SimplySara from These are great and there's much less prep and clean up with these daisies as opposed to the royal icing daisies. I made a 2-tiered birthday cake covered with these flowers for a daisy themed party. It was a big hit. I attached the centers with gum paste glue instead of the icing. I also used the white gum paste for the centers. Then I mixed yellow pearl dust with clear vanilla extract to form a paint and painted the centers. It gives the flowers a nice sparkle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hawtiec from These were so easy to make, and look so great. You can make the centers different colors. I actually used the small M&M's that you bake with to get a variety of colors-great for kid's cakes. To dress them up a bit, I've made them with yellow royal icing centers, and then dusted pearl dust on the petals to make them shimmer. Make sure you use enough paste between the layers as I have had a few come apart when they dried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jillbug from This is my all time favorite flower to use. I will sit in front of the TV and just make Daisies all evening. I like to keep them made up ahead of time. They make me happy because daisies are such a happy flower. I make the yellow center out of fondant too. I was taught to use a toothpick to texture the center, but prefer a straight pin because the indentions are smaller and more realistic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jmlatimer1 from I made a whole bunch of these for Mother's Day cakes this year. They are really easy to do. The first few were a learning experience but then I got quicker with the more that I made. I had a little problem getting the daisies out once I cut them, but if you use the end of the small roller to push them threw they come out easily. They were a hit, both my mother and mother-in-law loved them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dianejennings from Love making these quick flowers. You can play with them and make them intricate ruffled "double daisy" or leave them plain and make a quick cake. They do last a long time if you keep them in a box away from the dust, so you can make up some in advance for those immediate times you need a cake.

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

Rated 4 out of 5 by honeybee77 from Made these to go on my Mothers Day cupcakes. I used yellow for the center and dipped the yellow in yellow colored sugar for a more detailed look. I also colored the gum paste purple, pink, and blue for the petals. Looked great but the opinions were mixed on the actual taste of them.
