Roll the fondant thin on nonstick, plastic rolling mat. Dip plungers in corn starch. Shake the excess off by slaping them on the table gently. Then dive in the fondant. Plunge the shape. Get it off the mat. Clean the intricate parts if necessary. Plunge it out. Let it dry a bit before putting on the cake.

There is one other snowflake plunger cutter, by Longzang which has rounded edges, sounds Chinese.

I used it with white chocolate MC and it popped out the tiniest snowfakes easily.  The build up is outside the mold that needs to be cleaned with the toothpick.

I put them on my holiday eggnog cookies.

Holiday EGGNOG CINNAMON cookies with vanilla glaze icing & white chocolate snowflake cut outs.

 

there is also an Ateco snowflake cutter, that is shaped more like a star with an imprint. Just don't give up the snowflakes, they are all pretty.

I was in tears trying to use mine for the first time. I discovered two things. A tad of Crisco works better than powders sugar and clean off the cutter often. Hope this helps others! 20131214_133741.jpg 1486k .jpg file

I rolled my fondant out thin.  It had a good coating of starch and let sit out for a couple minutes.

After I had pressed the plunger/cutter into the fondant I did NOT remove it.  

I then used the plunger part and pressed into the counter (for the design) and let go.

Lifted the plunger/cutter up about 6 inches into the air and pressed the plunger - out comes the snowflake.

I made about 40 snowflakes of various sizes and only wrecked one!
