I havent made flowers with it however I think you could possibly make simple ones if you stopped frequently or made them quickly because it would melt easily..I hope this helps!
if it melts easily will it stand up to the heat and/or humidity of a summer day? I have wanted to use fondant on a cake but i really don't care for the taste.
