they look like buttercream.  Piped like the Lily of the Valley flower.  But meant to look like blossoms on a tree.  You could probably make little fondant blossoms, that would work too.

 

Here is a link for piping lily of the valley.  You only need the blossom tip Wilton 81

Very pretty cake.

like these but super tiny--and then of course these would be out of fondant

 

i got one umpteen years ago from somewhere...it's metal--got it before they even made them in plastic

I thought they looked like buttercream too, but when I blew up the pic some of them are scalloped. Thank you both for your input.
