Learn how to make fondant poppies

Michael and I are over at The Write Stuff, hosted by author Marcia Meara, with a YouTube video on how to make fondant poppies.

The Write Stuff

The cover of Sir Chocolate and the sugar dough bees story and cookbook features some bright red fondant poppies.

A number of people have admired these poppies and have asked me how I made them. In response, Gregory and I made a YouTube video of how to make fondant poppies. It is easiest to use a poppy petal cutter to make these flowers but if you don’t have one, you can draw the petals onto wax paper, cut them out and use this as a stencil to cut out the petal shapes.

We use the poppies we made for this video to decorate a simple cake for a friend’s birthday.

      1. Thank you Robbie. It is good to be back. School starts on Monday so we are getting ourselves prepared. Should be more around the computer then. Hoping to see what you have been up to while I’ve been away 🙂

      2. Thank you, Sumyanna. I see some posts from you so I am going to pop over right away. Lots happening on my side as I have resigned from my day job and am planning to write full time for a while.

    1. Thank you, Christy. I make a video every now and then when I can persuade Greg to do the filming. It makes a change and brings Greg into the whole book thing. I hope that you too have a lovely relaxing weekend.
