Do you mean icing or fondant? Are you looking for realistic or cute? I can't do realistic icing flowers, but I have done some that were pretty cute out of fondant. I got the wilton fondant flower kit and the first(?) lesson was apple blossoms. I haven't looked at an apple blossom for a while, but they're cute-the little girl next door just loves them.

Here's the wilton how-to link on apple blossoms and a number of other flowers and decors.

krazykat_14, I love to know how to do it with fondant/flower paste if possible.

indydebi, thanks for the reply, but I;m not good with buttercream flowers and things like that.

I have a cake in my photos with cherry/apple blossoms on it in my gallery. I rolled out white gumpaste, used wiltons medium 5 petal cutter to cut out the flowers. I thinned out the petals a little to make them more natural. I lied them on a small puft of cotton coated with corn starch to dry. The I colored them with petal dust, and added wiltons yellow stamen. Attached a wire and there you have it. Really not to hard.
