You will need:

Edibles:

Equipment:

  • 28g white flower paste
  • petal dusts: yellow and sunset orange
  • cornstarch
  • non-stick rolling pin
  • small brush
  • 3.8cm (1.5in) wide circle cutter
  • plunger cutter (or other thin cylindrical item)

1

Roll out 28g of white gum paste to 0.07cm thick. Using a 3.8cm wide circle cutter, cut out five circles and dust the backs with some cornstarch.

2

Arrange the circles on the palm of your hand as shown so circles overlap and all touch in the middle.

3

Take the end of a small brush and use it to push in on the middle of the flower from the front.

4

Pinch the petals together from the back.

5

Use a rounded piece of fondant to top the cylinder shaped portion of a plunger cutter (or other thin cylindrical item) Use this to dry your frangipani flower overnight.

6

Once dried, dust with yellow and sunset orange petal dusts. Start with yellow dust in the centre and brush outward towards the ends of the petal about halfway; next dust with orange starting in the centre and out about a quarter way up the petal.
