When it comes to sugar modelling paste I’m a beginner, but as you can see the buttons look good, so they cannot be difficult 🙂

I used ready-made sugar modelling paste, I bought it in several colors at once, so as not to play with the dyes. Play with the mass in your hands so that it gets more formable. Then put it into a mold to get the desired shape. It’s quite hard to get the buttons out without damaging the center holes, so it’s a good idea to let them dry and stiff for a while.

I dreamed of golden buttons, so I treated the yellow ones additionally with golden food spray.

Ready sugar buttons look really cute 🙂
