Step 1: Take red fondant and gum paste mix and roll out 1/8th inch thick. Make cut-outs using round medium cutter.
Step 2: Use vegetable shortening for your hand to avoid sticking knead into a smooth ball.
Step 3: No cracks should be present before modeling into strawberry shape with your fingers.
Remember all the strawberries do not have a perfect shape!
Step 4: Take the narrow end of the veining tool to make indention’s like you find on real strawberry.
Step 5: Take a small calyx cutter or a small flower cutter to make the calyx out of green gum paste. Use the veining tool to flatten each calyx or flower petal on dusted thin foam.
Step 6: Use gum paste glue or water to attach the calyx on the top end of the strawberry and make a small hole to attach stem.
Step 7: Make a small stem and curl it from gum paste before attaching on top of calyx with gum paste glue.
