I have designed a princess themed cake for my friend’s daughter back in the middle of October. Here’s how I made the fondant brooch from scratch. This simple brooch can be made in any size you want. Make it ahead of time to allow enough drying time
How to Make a Fondant Brooch
What you need
Fondant (I use my homemade marshmallow fondant)
Tylose or gumpaste (optional)
Small rolling pin
Silver and white pearl dust
Lemon extract or vodka
Paint pallet or small bowl
Toothpick or wooden skewer
Knead fondant until pliable Use a 50/50 mixture of gumpaste and fondant or add a little bit of tylose powder to the fondant if you want the decoration to dry faster.
先搓軟翻糖，想翻糖裝飾快點乾透可混入gum paste (一比一份量)，或少許tylose powder。
Dust the work surface with some cornstarch to prevent fondant from sticking Roll out fondant to a 1/16″ thickness and cut out a circle with the larger scallop cutter.
Place the circle on a foam pad. With a wooden skewer or a toothpick, ruffle the edges by running it along the edges.
Paint the ruffled circle with silver pearl dust diluted in several drops of lemon extract or vodka. Leave it on a flower former to harden.
將幾滴檸檬香油或vodka與銀色珍珠色粉混合做成顏料，用畫筆塗在圓形翻糖上，放在糖花塑型模 (flower former)上定形。
Cut out another circle with the smaller scallop cutter. Repeat the ruffling process. Roll a small piece of fondant into a ball then attach it in the center of the small ruffled circle with some water. Paint it with white pearl dust diluted in several drops of lemon extract or vodka. Brush a small amount of water in the middle of the larger silver circle then attach the smaller white circle on top. Adhere silver dragees around the fondant ball with water. Let dry overnight.
Once dry, the brooch is ready to be placed onto the cake!
