I'm making different sized flat little fondant flowers and I want to put a little circlein the center of each flower. I have been using a piping tip as a cutter, but I find that it's taking me lots of time because the fondant doesn't fall out easily, and the cornstarch makes the tip slippery in my hands.

Anyone have a quicker, easier way to do this?

Mix up a small batch of RI and pipe the centers. SOOOO much faster and easier!

you could always use edible pearls as centers, just use a little gum glue to hold it in place.

You could continue using your piping tips, but cover your fondant with plastic wrap before making the cut so the circles never stick inside the tip.

Fastest way is piping the centers with royal icing.

I will try the Saran idea. I'd like to avoid using RI as I'd like the flowers to be all fondant.
