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.
Happy poppy making!
