Remove some fondant from the roll and softly knead with hands.
Knead thoroughly with the CMC powder or other edible glue.
Roll out to 1 mm (approximately 1/12 inch) thick with a little powdered sugar for the petals. Cut them out with a cookie cutter and cover the unused fondant immediately with plastic wrap so it does not dry.
Thin each petal at the edges with a teaspoon, dipping the spoon often in powdered sugar so it does not stick.
Put the petals together at the bases at a wide angle to form the flower shape.
Place each flower in a small bowl, so that the tip of the flower hangs down. Roll the flower edges a brush style outwards.
For the pistols, roll some fondant with a brush into thick sticks.
Color with food coloring as desired.
Slide the pistols into the petals. Touch the fondant with a few drops of water to "glue" it. Let it dry before moving.
