I have noticed that on many wedding cake cookies people add these little five petal flowers. They don't look like piped icing flowers so I'm wondering if they're fondant flowers? I have searched for a fondant cutter in that small shape and couldn't find anything. They also don't look like larger sugar sprinkle type flowers. I hope I described them well enough as I don't know how to post pictures or link to a picture yet. Thanks so much!
They are usually made from fondant or gumpaste.
You can use the tiny green flower cutters from the beginner Wilton gumpaste flower kit that most decorating stores sell. There's a few sizes in there.
Even better though, get the plunger-type cutters. They are so much easier to use and you can make 50+ flowers in a minute!
Hello HeidiCrumbs! Welcome to CC!
I have "sprinkles" like that, but would hate to put them on a cookie "by hand" - it would take forever! LOL! Antonia74 said it best!!
Here is some helpful links for newcomers. Also, There is a "Lounge" for members if you wish to participate there. Lounge is for OT and non-cake related stuff.

Dancing mice--I owe that to Frankyola
That plunger looks perfect! However, do you know what the smallest size is? I would like something the size of my pinkie fingernail if you can picture that, and I have pretty small nails, lol! I think it would be a pain, but I just don't think that the sugar sprinkle type flowers have as clean of lines on the overall shape, unless I am not going to the right place for my sprinkles. Thanks again!
This is my favorite little flower mold for cookies.
Reasonably priced too.
Thank you Heidi for posting the question and to Antonia for the answer, I have been wondering this myself for a while .
I love CC , everyone here is so nice and helpful!
That last link looks perfect! Thank you to all who posted!
Antonia, can I ask where you purchased your little flower plunger/cutters? I wouldn't even know where to start looking .
I got mine from either McCalls Baker's Warehouse or Golda's Kitchen, both near Toronto.....I think?
Here's the link to a basic Wilton set...
This is a great idea! I haven't worked with gumpaste or fondant before, but really like this idea. Antonia - Which do you recommend for these little flowers? I need it to be study enough to go on packaged cookies. Thanks!
