Step 1
 
For the center, roll an oval shape using yellow fondant. Then, dip a toothpick in water and slide it into your fondant. This will create glue.
Step 2
 
Cut out white fondant using a heart shape cutter. The bigger your cutter, the bigger your flower and vice versa.
Step 3
Create on one side only veines by using a flower veiner mold.
Step 4
 Turn your heart piece around (the veines should be facing down) and place it on a foam pad.Then, using a ball tool, thin out the edges of all your petals.  
Step 5
Wrap opposite edge to form a cone, using a paper cone as a mold. Make sure your paper cone is dusted with cornstarch. (this will prevent your piece to stick)Gently shape top edge. Brush a small amount of water to glue both opposite edge together.  Let it dry on your paper cone for at least 12 hours.
 Step 6 
1.2. 
To attach the inside, brush a small amount of water at the bottom of your center piece create on step 1. Slide it right in the middle of your flower.
Step 7
1.2.
 
3.4.
Roll out a small green fondant ball. Brush a small amount of water at the bottom of your flower and slide your piece through the toothpick. Finish by molding it to your flower. (this will make sure your center is intact and attaches all your pièces together)
Step 8
1.2.
Brush two different shades of green edible luster dust with a clean brush at the bottom of your flower using the darker shade first. Using the same lister dust palet, paint the inside using the lighter shade of green around your center and finish with highlighting the crease of the center with the darker shade.
