1 ½ tablespoons unflavored gelatin
2 tablespoons cold water
1 ½ teaspoons shortening
¼ cup glucose
1 ½ teaspoons glycerine
1 pound powdered sugar

Prepare Butter cream Frosting: In a mixer bowl, cream butter and shortening until smooth. Add in powdered sugar alternately with milk and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Set aside.

Prepare Fondant: Combine gelatin and water and heat until gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat and add shortening, glucose and glycerine. Stir until well blended. Place powdered sugar on a clean working surface and make a well at the center. Pour heated mixture into the center. Using a wooden spoon, slowly incorporate the liquid into the powdered sugar. When dough gets heavy, knead fondant until smooth and pliable. Get a small portion of fondant and tint with yellow color to create small beads for flower center. Set aside. Roll out the rest of fondant dough on a cornstarch dusted working surface until ¼ inch thick then make flower cut out using cookie cutter. You can tint some yellow and leave others white.
