Use the Small Building Block Texture Mat and fondant color of choice.
Roll out the fondant evenly across the mat. Be careful when rolling to get a smooth impression - if the fondant shifts you can get a double impression. If it keeps slipping you can use a fondant smoother and direct pressure down on the fondant.
When finished, flip the mat over and peel back off the fondant. See on the side area where there is a double impression from the fondant slipping? Use a circle cutter (we are showing some with a circle cutter and a fluted circle cutter) to cut out discs from the center area. Let them dry for a few days to hold their shape.
For the building blocks, use the building block mold and fondant or gumpaste. Take a smooth ball of fondant and press into the mold cavity.
Smooth out the fondant while pressing into the mold to get a good impression. I like to use my rolling pin for this step.
Using a palette knife or tool of choice, remove the excess.
Clean up the edges.
Invert the mold and pop out the building block.
Arrange onto cupcakes!
