pistil

let flower dry for at least 3 days before using it. this time allows the fondant to  dry completely and the flower can maintain its shape when used.

  1. Such a beautiful decoration!
    I am thinking of trying this out soon 😀 by the way, you mentioned that the fondant has to be left to dry to ensure its shape. Should it be left to dry in the fridge? What sort of temperature and humidity level would you recommend?
