Ingredients For Jelly Bean Flowers
Flower 1 is made by cutting jelly beans candy’s in half, across the shorter part of the bean.
Flower 2 is made by cutting the jelly beans in half lengthwise. The flower center for this shape is the same as the center (and petals) for Flower 1.
Once the pieces are cut lay out the flowers as you would like, onto a piece of waxed paper. Mix and match colours as desired.
Next, on a separate piece of wax paper, pipe blobs of royal icing about 1cm round for each flower. Attach the flower parts together, starting with the center of your flower. Add petals making sure each piece touches the royal icing. Finish by sprinkling on some Coloured Sugar Dust to cover up the royal icing.
Allow to set over the next 4 hours, carefully peel off the wax paper and have fun decorating your cake!
