Fondant Rainbow Toppers are perfect for topping cupcakes, cakes and cookies. Use them to top an ice cream sundae or a milkshake, like the Unicorn Rainbow Milkshake.
To make Fondant Rainbow Toppers, you’ll need:
- 2 ounces white fondant
- assorted gel food colors (I used pink, orange, yellow, green, blue & violet.)
- clay extruder (Click here to find clay extruder.)
- plastic wrap
- 1-inch round cutter or plastic bottle cap
- paring knife
- small paint brush
- clay slicer, optional (Click here to find clay slicer.)
Divide fondant into 6 pieces. Color each piece of fondant a different color with gel food color. Use a toothpick to apply small amounts of gel food color a little at a time until desired shade is reached. Form fondant pieces into balls, then form each ball into a log.
As you work, make sure to use plastic wrap to cover the fondant you are not working with to avoid it drying out. Place one fondant log in a clay extruder fitted with an 1/8-inch circular die. Press out log into a long rope. Repeat with each color.
Using a round cutter or plastic bottle cap as a guide, form pieces of the ropes of fondant into rainbows. Apply a bit of water between the ropes with a small paintbrush to adhere them together. Trim the ends with a paring knife or clay slicer. Let rainbows dry a few hours or overnight.
Makes 5 rainbows.
