Lightly dust your work surface and rolling pin with cornstarch so the fondant doesn’t stick. Then start by rolling your white fondant out and leaving it pretty thick. Then roll out your blue fondant a little bit thinner. I tried to show you in this picture, the difference in thicknesses.
Cut 3 thin strips from your blue fondant and place on top of the white. Then use the rolling pin to roll the entire piece to the desire thickness.
Use your cookie cutter to cut out your shape! Smooth any of the edges if they are rough.
Then step back and admire how your stripes are fully incorporated into the white fondant! They are one continuous surface and completely smooth and blended together!
I suggest letting them sit out for a couple hours to harden and then placing on top of your cupcakes. I kind of rushed these and placed them right on and you can tell a little how the points of my stars are sagging. Yours will look MUCH better than mine if you let them sit for a couple hours to maintain their shape!
