We all made some flowers of different colors so we could mix and match for a nicer looking end result. We rolled out the fondant at a 1/8 and inch and fit it into a flower press. Super simple!!!

Next, we made Pansy's. Again we rolled out our gum paste/fondant mixture but this time cut it out with a blossom shape. Using the thinner of our two sponges we used our ball tool to thin out the edges of the petals, then on the thick sponge we pressed the petals in to create a 3 dimensional look. We pressed out more blossoms of a different color and cut the petals apart. Using the same thinning/pressing technique we used two petals as accents for each flower, attaching them to the base with gum glue adhesive (a combo of gum paste and water, applied with a paintbrush). The finishing touch was a small loop of gum paste/fondant in the center of the flower, also attached with gum glue.

|1st Attempt- The white mold underneath gives the flower it's shape while it dries|
|Ran out of yellow petals, turned out nice anyway|
