Candy gummy rings
Dark blue color dust
Yellow color dust

1. Dust work surface with cornstarch. Thinly roll fondant; stamp with petal veiner included in kit.

2. Cut blossoms with petal cutter. Press petal edges between fingertips; shape and let harden on candy gummy rings until firm enough to lift.

3. Accent petals with dark blue color dust. Mold anthers; let harden, and brush with yellow dust. Dot petal centers with corn syrup; add anthers.
