You also need:

Small round sprinkle for the center
Tooth pick or Craft knife


1. Take the modeling chocolate and knead it so it is just softened.

2. On a flat surface, roll out the modeling chocolate to the desired thickness of your flower. This flower was about 1/8" thick.

3. Press a flower cutter in the rolled modeling chocolate to create a flower. Pull away the excess.

4. Place a round sprinkle in the middle of the flower and shape the petals of the flower so they come up halfway toward the center.

5. With a craft knife or tooth pick, simply pick up with flower, and place it on top of your cupcake!
