Open the fondant and discard the wrapper.

Use the rolling pin to roll the fondant to about 1/8-1/4″ and use the holly cookie cutter to cut the holly leaves out.

*Recipe makes approximately 16-18 cupcakes. The wreath I made uses 6 cupcakes. You could easily use the batter to make mini cupcakes for a ‘thicker’ holiday wreath.
