Learning how to make small fondant flowers is easier than you’d think. With a few simple steps you can shape your plain old fondant into pretty mini roses – perfect for decorating cakes, cupcakes and biscuits.

How to Make Small Fondant Flowers?

  • Cut off a small section of fondant and roll it into a small ball.
  • Next, roll the ball into a log shape and flatten half of the log.
  • Holding onto the log-half of your fondant, roll the thinner, fanned section of the fondant in on itself – this forms the centre of the rose.
  • Once you have your centre, take the remaining log-half of your fondant and flatten sections of it to form the outside petals. You should have enough for three petals. Make sure they overlap to give that rose effect.

Bonus Step: If you leave the rose as is, it’s a perfect mini flower, but if you’d like to make the rose even bigger or fuller, flatten out any remaining fondant to create five further outside petals.
