How to Make Fondant Peony Flower

I made this cake with a simple Fondant Peony Flower for my cousin who was turning 16. She wanted something simple but elegant and decided to go with a two tiered cake, adorned with a yellow Peony Flower on the side.


The Peony Flower was made using self made petal cutters, as I wasn’t about to go and spend 50$ on the set of the peony cutters. It did take quite some time to shape each petal and then dry it and put the whole thing together, but I was rather pleased with the result.


I did not find any videos on how to make the peony cutters (like I did), but I did find a videos on how to make a similarly shaped peony flower. It’s 4 videos, for 4 stages.

The videos show how to make the Peonies using gumpaste, which is usually easier to use for flowers and such, because you’re able to roll it out thinner without the gumpaste ripping.

Also, you will need some kind of crate-type of molds to dry out each petal and while they’re using the egg crate, I used the plastic apple crates from Costco.

I am not pro, but the videos were clear enough for me to use and make my own flower.
Hope you try making your own Fondant Peony Flowers and succeed!

  • Hi Oksana!
    This cake had many and many layers of “Markiza” cake (I have the recipe here on the blog). I do not remember how many layers it was, or what the size of this cake was, since it was a long time ago. But it was covered in a cream made with heavy cream and powdered sugar.
    Hope this helps.
    Thanks for visiting and I appreciate your lovely comment 🙂
