What’s better than actual rose petals to decorate your desserts? Edible Fondant Rose Petals! They’re perfect to decorate cupcakes, cakes and cookies, and to be used as a garnish for drinks and other desserts too! Here’s a complete video tutorial for free! 🙂
A few months ago, I made this amazing Vanilla Rose and White Chocolate Cocktail inspired by my Sri Lankan Falooda drink, but never got around to publishing it on the blog until today. It’s a delightfully delicious, sweet, creamy, floral white chocolate cocktail flavoured with a Rose syrup made from scratch and it also has a very romantic feel to it because of that gorgeous red, pink colours. I decided to take that romantic vibe a step further, and made these beautiful fondant rose petals to garnish that cocktail.
So if you guys have fondant tools (which are easy to find in any cake decorating supplies store, or some supermarkets or on Amazon), here’s a SIMPLE tutorial on how to make those gorgeous and very realistic-looking Fondant Rose Petals, so you can decorate absolutely anything you want with edible flower petals like these! 🙂
