How to Make Fondant Doily Cupcake Toppers

Get creative with your decorating tips! Make
edible doilies using various tip shapes to cut designs from fondant. Round tips create
an eyelet design, while petal tips give a pretty teardrop look. One day in advance, roll out 8 oz fondant
that has been mixed with ½ tsp gum-tex. Use fondant roller with pink guide rings to roll
out fondant 1/16 in. thick. Use scalloped side of “A” size round cut-out
to cut one shape for each treat. Use tip 3 to cut out little holes along the
edge in groups of three. If the cut-out doesn’t come out, you can remove it using a pin.
Next, use tip 12 to cut a hole in the center. Then use tip 102 to cut out a row of tear
drop shapes, have the narrow end point towards the hole in the center. Next cut a row of
tip 3 circles, then another row of tip 102. It looks like something that would have taken all day, when it’s really quite simple!

  1. Pretty clever technique! This video looks like an infomercial for some reason, haha…

  2. What is the ratio of gum-tex to fondant Please? and does gum-tex have a flavor that will ruin the flavor of my marshamallow fondant?
