A quick and easy flower to make from fondant, daffodils can brighten and cake and are actually easy to make!
Using a basic flower shaped cookie cutter, cut a few from some yellow fondant.
Thin and stretch the petals a bit with a ball tool. Be sure to place the flower on something soft such as foam so that you can get the true effect — it won’t work too well on a hard surface.
With a pointed tool, etch some thin lines in each petal to add some depth and interest.
Take a small amount of fondant and using the ball tool work it until it forms a bit of a cup shape for the center of the daffodil.
With a bit of water, place the cup in the center of the flower and place the flower a bowl shaped stand or even an upturned egg carton.
Carefully pinch each petal slightly to form it into a bit of a point. Then let each flower dry and harden.
Add some orange dust to create shadowing and make the flower look more realistic.
Finally cut some leaves from green fondant and them all to the top of any cake!
