Really enjoyed making these fondant flowers at a Slow Food Waitakere event hosted by Alessandra Zecchini at her lovely Oratia home on 22 Nov. Only 5 of us altogether but we had a great time chatting away and learning new skills with icing. My first attempts were the big yellow and pink roses, then we fine-tuned our petals till we could make mini versions. Then Alessandra showed us how to make real teeny flower buds and leaves, which look great as a trio.
Yellow and white fondant is available from supermarkets and the brighter colours and chocolate-flavoured you can buy from Gilmours.
Now I have to make the cupcakes for the flowers to go on!
The flowers keep for ages, wrapped airttight in cling film.
