Hello, and Welcome to another Strawberry Saturday! I hope this weekend is looking to be a good one, and I’m thrilled you’re including reading this post in your activities! Today’s post is a simple, but sweet tutorial on a fun fondant garnish you can use on any of your summertime creations! These would look great on cupcakes, around a cake, or on most other desserts! Especially if they are strawberry themed!

For the decorations, you’ll need:
First, start by dying your fondant red and green. You’ll want about a marble sized piece of red and pea sized piece of green for each strawberry.
Now, you’ll roll your red piece into a ball, and then elongate it slightly, so it’s almost a cone. You’ll want the top edge flat and the bottom a rounded point. For the green, roll into a small ball and then flatten with the tip of your finger.
Take your knife and remove small triangles all around the green disc. Press the remaining “leaves” into small points at the tips. Attach this to your strawberry.
Take the pointer tool from the fondant tools set (or using a toothpick) make small impressions all around the strawberry. Take care not to smash the strawberry while holding/turning it.
When done, you can add more leaves, a stem, a vine, or anything else you’d like to make your strawberry more realistic! Add many or just a single one to create the look you’re going for.
