Fondant is very hard to use when making flowers, so you might want to consider gumpaste. Fondant doesn't stretch well, it's hard to roll thinly, and takes a long time to dry.

Books by Alan Dunn and Leslie Herbert are very good instructional books. The DVD "Bloomin' Garden" shows you how to make roses, carnations, blossoms, quick leaves, baby's breath, ruffles, and a striped bow. You can get it at

There may be tutorials on this site to get you started. Try surfing through the articles to see what you can find.

Good luck with your flowers.

I've really not had a problem making flowers from fondant, even when it comes to drying. Actually, I rather like fondant and it is edible. However, gumpaste is stronger and less fragile.

The flowers and leaves below are fondant.

Try Youtube. There are tons of cake decorating videos on there, fondant included.
