The Supplies:

  • Store bought white fondant
  • Food Coloring
  • Round cookie cutter appx. 2.75″ in diameter
  • Cupcakes with icing

To begin you will want to divide your fondant into 4 pieces that are about the size of golf balls. Leave one piece white and color one of the other pieces black. Then use any two other colors that you want for the remaining two pieces of fondant. Once all your pieces of fondant are colored, roll the fondant into long snake shapes just like you used to do with play-dough or clay. Now twist the pieces together to create something a little like this:

Then keep twisting, roll it out, fold over and twist again to get a little something like this:

When you have done this folding over and twisting it process three times, roll it into a ball and then roll out the fondant on a corn starch dusted surface. Use your cookie cutter to cut out fondant rounds.
