How do I made buttons out of fondant?? I want to use them to line the base of a baby shower cake but I'm not sure how to make them- please help!!!
I make mine using 2 icing tips. 1 bigger one and one smaller one. Use the big tips "bottom" end of as a cookie cutter to cut out your button. Then use the the smaller tips bigger hole to make the inner circle impression. Then using a small dowel or paint brush end to dot the botton holes.
Hope that makes sense.
I've done them by rolling a small piece of fondant into a ball, then using a wooden dowel to push down the center (I used the small wooden rolling pin from the Wilton gumpaste flowers kit). Then use your small tip to punch the holes in the middle.
Hope this makes sense.
Thank you for the tips- they were very helpful!!
