So these are pretty much felt flowers, but made with fondant. Then, put on cookies. So fondant flowers cookies. But in 3-D?
Back in August, I was invited to a wedding up in Connecticut. Given the bride’s British father, they suggested that the ladies (and gentlemen) don hats. The crazier the better. Rather than spend a fortune on an outlandish hat, I opted to buy a $20 white hat with a wide brim from World Market and attach my own, felt flowers.
I wondered if I could apply the same technique to fondant.
how to make fondant flowers
step one: make your fondant
step two: make your flowers
step three: make your leaves
step four: arrange your flowers
Arrange your leaves and flowers on cookies or cupcakes, using dabs of royal icing, light corn syrup or frosting as needed to adhere. I just piped on some buttercream frosting and stuck the flowers and leaves on right away.

Love how you dressed up that white hat and those cookies! You are so creative. Really…who else would look at a felt flower and say *I think I'll make cookies and create felt flower fondant?!*
These are so cute and bright and happy and I LOVE THEM! And your hat. I love that. I agree with Paula. You are SO creative!

The hat flowers rock..I would love to do that to all my baseball hats just so people would stare at me and think I am cool. I love the idea of fondant flowers on the cookies. It is a different look and whimsical, NICE JOB
