These quick and easy fondant flowers can be placed on your cake right after you roll them. Roses can be made in a variety of sizes. Position alone on a mini sweet treat, in groupings or as a border, then add fondant or buttercream leaves to create a full bouquet.

The luxurious folds of a fondant drape add richness as a side garland or as skirt accents. Make a larger, more dramatic drape by cutting a larger rectangle. Be sure not to roll out fondant too thick before gathering?the weight of the drape may tear the ends.
