  • Color your remaining 3 oz. of white fondant with 3 drops of yellow and 3 drops of red. Knead until completely tinted.
  • Roll into 1-inch spheres and shape into long cylinders, about 3 inches in length and half an inch wide.
  • Give each cylinder a little curl and place water on the back. Stick one onto each of your yellow fondant circles.
  • Using a stand mixer, beat together butter, icing sugar and milk on slow. Gradually increase the speed to high. These ingredients will make up your buttercream frosting. It is complete once the ingredients are well-combined, smooth, and form semi-stiff peaks.
