Anyone have any clue how to make a fondant snowflake without a stamped cutter?

here's two ways:


1.) cut a pattern out of a heavy cardboard and trim away the fondant with an exacto knife--overpipe with royal to add angles and accent --sprinkle with sugar or glitter--


2.) make a cutter/s--make the outline them make a couple tiny ones to cut out the inner pieces--


there are other tutorials available if you do an online search for 'making cookie cutters'


best to you

you didn't ask but my favorite way is to pipe white chocolate to make snowflakes

I use a mold, like for making chocolates.

i need snowflakes by tomorrow. not enough time to order a mold, but i might look one up for next time!


I actually may try the white chocolate idea. Seems easiest. i already had to learn to make candy ice for this cake!

ABuy a snowflake punch. Roll out gumpaste, let it sit to harden a little. Then punch away. Easy if you want a lot of snowflakes.

I bought the snowflake punches. i bought 3 different sizes. The smaller ones I got for $1 and $1.99 at Michaels and I got a larger one for $13.99 at Hobby Lobby (but I used a 40% off coupon thank goodness). I had to roll the gumpaste literally paper thin to get it in the punch slot. Once it hardened slightly it was easy enough to punch. this morning i tried punching some more and realized that once the gumpaste hardens too much  the snowflakes just crumble and break. 


thanks for the tips ladies! i will try chocolate for my larger snowflakes. the punches only make them so big.

awesome! wafer paper also works in the punches if you happen to have any laying around--
