Hibiscus Sugar Paste Fondant Flower Instructions:

Step 1. Dye a piece of fondant using the coloring gel. Use toothpicks to add a little bit of dye at a time. When you are happy with the color you have, roll out into a thin layer. With the largest Flower Shape Cutter from the Floral Collection Flower Making Set cut out a large yellow flower.

Step 2. Dye a smaller piece of fondant or sugar paste using a different color. Roll out into a thin layer. Use the Star-shaped cutter from the cutter set to cut out the center contrast for the Hibiscus flower.

Step 3. Use the Ball Tool from the Confectionery Tool Set in a rolling motion to thin out the outer edges of the flower. The thinner you can get them the better.

Step 4. Layer the contrasting fondant on top of the yellow flower. Cut off extra long petals so it fits nicely inside of the yellow Hibiscus flower. Again using the Ball Tool, thin out both layers together.

Step 5. Using the Shell Tool from the same kit, create ridges from the outer edges of the petals to the center of the flower by pushing down and pulling inward. Continue with all petals. Your flower should start looking like a Hibiscus flower now. (Note that this picture does not have the center contrasting fondant since this was taken while making a plain yellow flower).

Step 6. Once all petals are done, form into flower shape by squeezing the center of the flower. Insert White Pearl Stamens into the center and prop up inside cookie cutters, small cups, or using the flower cutter itself. Let dry for couple of hours.
