In order to make Shooting Stars for Cakes made from Fondant Icing, you will need the following ingredients and supplies: fondant cookie cutters, wire cutters, gumpaste, a pastry brush, icing spatula, glue (or gumpaste with water), a paint brush, a fondant rolling pin, powdered sugar, floral wire, and a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
Cut floral wire with wire cutters. Dust your working surface with powdered sugar and roll out the gumpaste with the rolling pin. Roll it out to 1/8 thickness. Cut out stars with your cookie cutter. Apply glue to the tip of the wire. Insert the wire into the stars. Use them to decorate your cake. Do not insert the wires directly into the cake. You need to coat or cover them in something first.
