Several days in advance: Make fondant loop petals. Knead 24 oz. of white fondant with 2 teaspoons Gum-Tex™ on Roll & Cut Mat dusted with cornstarch. Divide fondant into 4 oz. portions and tint orange, rose, violet, blue and two 4 oz. portions yellow. Roll out each section of fondant 1/8 in. thick and cut 15 strips (2 ½ long x 1/8 in. wide) for each cupcake.
To make flower loops, fold strips in half and brush open ends with decorating brush that has been dipped in water. Gently press ends closed and let dry. To make flower centers, roll ½ in. diameter balls of yellow fondant; flatten slightly with fingers and let dry.
