Once again, I need some ideas. My sister wants me to make a 6 in round in 2 days. She wants an orchid on it and to say happy birthday. I'm not really sure what an orchid looks like. I did a search on google, i found one pic i might be able to use, but i need help!! Any ideas would be much appreciated. THANK YOU!!

Hi when you did the Google search, did you look in Images? I just went there and there are lots of orchids to see, especially since you said you don't know what they look like.

Here are a couple of pictures I found that might work for you. Janice

It does that while the page is loading. May just need more time to load.

Hello, are you making the Orchid out of Gumpaste ? or are you just wanting to know how an Orchid FLower look like? I am n the process of making a LOT of Orchids out of Gumpaste for my entry for the California State Fair Cake Show in August. I am making different sizes, but mostly white with a hint of Pastel colors in the "throat" using chalk. I would be more than happy to give you tips if you're interested. Thank you for your time

I would really appreciate any help you can provide on making orchids from gum paste. my email address is ybelfonte@dynamic.ca and I have a wedding cake on which I would like to put some of those very orlchids - think they are called cymbidiums. the cake is for July 9th so i don't have that much time.

I just did my wedding cake with about 10 orchids on it. I made these from fondant and they took about three days to dry out enough. I used the directions in the Wilton book on making GumPaste Flowers and the cutting tools they have for this.

Here's a picture of the cake:
