- fluted round cutters of different widths
- foam pad of some type (mouse pad, piece of yoga mat, or you can buy a forming mat)
- forming tools or at a minimum a ball tool
- luster dust
- dry paint brush
- sugar pearls
While your petals are drying, work on your centers. Roll out a pea sized piece of fondant into a smooth ball and flatten it with your finger. Use a tool to add the pattern around the edges and then add an indentation in the center. Add a small drop of water to the indentation, then top it with a sugar pearl.
Once the petals have dried for about an hour (you want the edges firm, but the center still a bit pliable), it is time to assemble. Add a dab of water to the center of your biggest petal, then top it with the next smallest sized petal. Repeat again with the third and fourth petals. Since the centers are still a bit pliable, you will be able to tweak the way each layer sits to make them just like you want them. Add a bit more water to the center and then add the prepared centers with the sugar pearls on them. Move them back to the muffin tins to allow to dry completely overnight.
