1. If you’ve made the fondant afresh, take a 3 inch ball sized fondant and roll it on your work surface dusted with enough icing sugar. If the fondant was made few days ahead of making these flowers, microwave for about 1 minute and knead until it forms smooth dough and then roll it. While rolling make sure to move and turn the fondant often to avoid sticking to the counter. Make sure the fondant is rolled smooth and thin. Once rolled, use your flower plungers to cut out the shapes, one bigger and the other smaller. Make as many flower pairs as needed.
2. Using a toothpick make impressions on each petal and also on the center of the flower.
3. Make similar impression on the petals of the smallers flowers too.
4. Now place the smaller flowers on top of the bigger flowers.
5. Make an impression in the center of the smaller flowers.
