These didn’t come out quite as well as I hoped, mainly because I didn’t have the right cutter for the fondant, and I was having issues with my flower cutters.  But it was a quick easy idea that you might want to try.  You definitely don’t need to be an expert with fondant to do these. 

All I did was roll out the fondant, then use an imprint mat to make the design.  Just smooth a little icing on the top of the cupcakes to adhere the fondant, cut out the size you need and place it on the cupcake.  In the end, I really liked them best before the little pink flowers, but my daughter was helping and since it was for her bake sale,  she got to decide. 

Give them a try.  I will try them again one day when I have more time to work on them.  But not too bad for a first attempt, I think.  And two dozen cupcakes took about 10 minutes to decorate. 

Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes!  It was a terrific day made all the sweeter for your kind words! 

Have a great day,

    I am not a fan of fondant. Seems everyone picks it off and leaves it on the plate.
    Did you like it?
