Fondant Flowers

My entry into Craft and Tell @ Cherished Bliss is sponsored by Appliances Online and the Bosch Washing Machines

_________________________________________________________
I made fondant flowers for the first time, and they came out so beautiful, I am really proud of myself.  I used my homemade marshmallow fondant recipe and then I used Wilton icing coloring to make blue and yellow fondant, those were the colors of the event that I was making the cupcakes and flowers for.  I have to say that kneading the color in the fondant is a lot of work, it took me about 25 minutes for one color, its a workout!  I made red velvet, vanilla pudding and lemon blossom cupcakes, and they came out so moist and good.  When I dropped them off, the people were so excited with how they turned out which is exciting for me to see.  So I guess I am moving on up in the cupcake and cookie business, I know no how to do a little decorating.

  7. These look soooooooooo beautiful
    I'd love to try and make your homemade marshmallow fondant.
    I have a question though - when you knead the fondant - why not with the mixer (as I do with bread-dough)?. Wouldn't it be easier to incorporate the color?
    Thanks!

    1. It would be easier, I guess I am just used to doing it the old fashioned way, I do the same when I make bread. I will try it that way when I make more fondant on Wed.

    2. Thanks so much for your reply :)
      I'd really like to try your fondant, especially when it looks sooooooooo good.
      I work a lot with yeast (I specialized in baking challahs) and I let the mixer do most of the kneading :)

  16. Those cupcakes are gorgeous and look delicious! I'm sure they were devoured. I love baking but I don't do it often--I would just eat it all and weigh 800 pounds.
