Step 1: You will need the following supplies:
I use Wilton's products because they are easy to find and use.
- Prepared rolled fondant
- Cutting board dusted with confectioners' sugar
- Fondant roller, daisy cutter, tools, and food coloring.
Step 2: Knead then roll out fondant to 1/8 inch thickness. Press daisy cutter firmly into dough without turning. Using sharp tool, cut around the daisy if necessary to ensure smooth edge.
Step 3: Using curved tool, make indentations in the daisy cutout to resemble folds in petals.
Step 4: Place daisy cutouts on waxed paper to dry (24 hours is best).
Step 5: Using gel food coloring on the end of a toothpick, place a tiny amount onto the center of a flattened piece of fondant. Fold the fondant over the food coloring and knead until the color is uniform. You might want to use latex gloves for this step - the food coloring can stain your hands.
Step 6: Make 1/2 inch balls by rolling pieces of fondant between palms. To make the flower centers dome-shaped, press a ball between your thumb and forefinger while turning against the surface until cone-shaped, then press gently on top to flatten slightly.
Step 7: Using a tiny bit of icing on the under sides of the flower centers, attach them to the daisy cutouts.
Step 8: When dry, press lightly onto frosting to adhere. Below, the daisies decorate jumbo cupcakes with lemon buttercream frosting.
