Total Time: 2.5 hrs | Yields: 8 Flower Pots
Dirt Pudding Ingredients
- 1 pkg. French Vanilla JELL-O Pudding Mix
- 1¼ cup Milk
- ½ cup Powdered Sugar
- 4 oz. Cream Cheese
- 2 tbsp. Butter
- 6 oz. Whipped Topping
- ½ pkg. Oreos
Fondant Flower Ingredients
- Silicone Pot Mold
- Baking Rods/Wooden Sticks
- Small Paint Brush
- Green Food Coloring (Gel)
- Fondant Ball Rod
Using electric mixer, combine pudding mix and milk. Add butter, powdered sugar, and cream cheese. Mix on medium to high speed until evenly distributed. Set aside.
Crush Oreo cookies into small pieces. Add handful of crushed Oreos into bottom of each silicone pot mold. Layer with pudding mixture. Continue to alternate until full.
Place in refrigerator for 20-40 minutes.
Using a thin paintbrush, cover wooden baking rods with green food coloring gel. Place in refrigerator for 1 hour to speed drying process.
Roll out a thin layer of pink fondant.
Use small spoons as petal templates.
Peel petals from spoons. Add petals, one by one, to stem (dried green wooden rod) and fold backward slightly. Use a touch of water (mixed with corn starch) to hold petals together. Allow each petal a few minutes to dry before adding additional petals.
Optional (you can also use pink fondant for this step): Pinch off 3 tiny pieces of yellow fondant per flower. Roll gently until long and thin. Add a touch of water (mixed with corn starch) to bottoms and place inside each flower.
Roll out a thin layer of green fondant. Using a knife, cut out long, thin leaves.
Gently press leaves to create curves.
Stick flower into each silicone pot mold, in the middle of the dirt pudding.
Gently insert leaves. Serve and enjoy.
