I saw a picture of a daisy cutout. Wanted to know what cutter was used for it.

Thanx a bunch from one fellow Texan to another. This is the exact cut out that I was looking for.

That's one of my favorite cutters. I could play with it all day long.

I just bought one too....and I LOVE it - so pretty! I bought the large one....but have not been able to find flower formers large enough to set my finished work in so that it develops a bit of shape while drying. If anyone knows where to find those, or any tricks of the trade... let me know!

I use the cardboard cup liners from Starbucks. Cut the in half, line with wax paper, and put your flowers on in there!

Cookie--I have been wanting to try chocolate fondant and I really like the look of yours. Would you mind sharing your recipe.

Unfortunately, I don't have a good chocolate fondant recipe. I've tried a few and have been unimpressed. That was Chocolate Pettinice (SP?).

You can make a flower former by laying a sheet of heavy duty foil over a cupcake pan. Push the foil a little ways into each cup so that it makes a curved shape. If all you have is regular foil, leave the foil over the cupcake pan to keep its shape.

When I make chocolate fondant, I use MMF but replace part of the powdered sugar with cocoa powder...I use the recipe that takes 2 lb powdered sugar, and I replace 1 cup with 3/4 cup cocoa powder. Different cocoa powders will make different flavors and colors. Hershey's special dark makes fondant that's almost black, and Guittard cocoa rouge (my favorite) makes a lighter brown fondant that tastes like tootsie rolls.

Thanks for the info, Texas Rose. What is Guittard cocoa rouge and where do you get it?
Thanks again

It's just another cocoa powder, but it has a great flavor. I buy it at the health food store every year before Christmas. I buy six cans and it lasts the year icon_biggrin.gif
