The versatility of fondant daisies cannot be overstated, due to the fact that they look attractive in a variety of colors. In this tutorial, you will learn to create these stylized pink daisies. We will be using sugar pearls to form the center of the flower.
I use this type of daisy to decorate cupcakes for weddings, bridal showers and birthdays parties.
For this you will need a mixture of 9 parts (90%) fondant to 1 part (10%) gum paste. This ratio helps the dough dry quickly so you can use the decorations immediately.
If you don’t want to make your own, you can use Wilton and Satin Ice bran ready to use fondant and gum paste.
These are the fondant cutter I used to make the daisies and you can buy them here
