Puffed-Up Petals Cupcakes is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I tried doing this flowers but it was difficult to make the petals. I put some CMC in the fondant to make it more elastic and it went well. then to maintain the shape I put tissue paper inside the petal so it won't change its form wield it cools

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes an absolutely gorgeous display of flowers... I made this for my parents 50th wedding anniversary and I can't even begin to tell you how many people wanted to know how to make these... I definately say A++++ wilton for this awesome idea!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This turned out really well.... make sure you make the petals about 3-4 days before decorating the cupcakes as it gives the petals more drying time. Good way to use up left over fondant and you end up with beautiful flowers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun and easy. I made the loops while stitting at the dining room table watching tv. I made lots of colors, and even tried blending so we had some that were "verigated". Lots of fun - everyone loved how cute they looked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just made these flowers for cupcakes and they came out great. I made smaller versions of them so they would dry faster. Marshmellow fondant is an easy variation to work with if you don't have the wilton fondant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Having never worked with fondant I was concerned but I used the Marshmallow fondant recipe from Wilton, and these cupcakes turned out great, they were a big hit! Most certainly something I will make again!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a great way to make a lovely display quickly. Making the flowers 1/4 the size and offsetting them on a swirl of frosting is a decorative alternative.
