These marzipan "daffodils" are as cute as a button and add happy pops of color to Martha's showstopping Easter cake, which was designed to resemble her real-life farm in Bedford, NY. A six-point-star cutter forms the base of the flowers, and then a flower tool that comes in modeling kits for fondant and gum paste is used to shape the inner petals.
Recipe Summary test
Keep marzipan covered when you're not working with it so it doesn't become brittle. We used the star cutter that came in the Ateco 12-piece aspic or jelly cutter set, 1/2", which can be found at Amazon. The flower tool came from the fondant and gum-paste modeling-tool set which can be found at nycake.com.
