I think it looks like a magnolia..
It almost looks like a dogwood to me, but I could be completely off base. I am not very good with my flowers.
There's no picture loading when I get to the link.
I would say Dogwood or possibly a Camellia
i agree with cakesbyLJ it is a magnolia
My first thought was magnolia.
I'm going to go with Magnolia also.
I'd vote dogwood.
I'd go w/magnolia but it also could be some kind of oversized orchid. Definately not dogwood, and a camellia would have more petals around the center...tight bud, then open petals. This doesn't.
What an OBNOXIOUS website! I hate websites that blare music at me!
That is however a gorgeous cake! I vote for magnolia too.
Magnolia to me too.
The Magnolia has a pointy petal and this one is round and has the little dip in, like the Dogwood has...however a Dogwood only has 4 petals and this one appears to have more. I kind of think they just made a flower.
"Not the ones flat against the cake, but the one full flower on the right sideof the picture"
That looks to be a wild rose in bloom, see here (http://www.americanmeadows.com/QuickGuideToWildflowers/FavoriteWildflowerSpecies/TheWildRoses.aspx)
I would think it is most similiar to a wood rose:
Many of which are native to Hawaii... making sense that it would appear on the cover of Pacific Weddings.
That would be the small inset photo of the pink wood rose at top of link...
It looks a magnolia to me and this was my first thought when I opened the link.
IMHO-- Dogwood have only a four petal flower "head" and most magnolias have smooth petals, not fluted as seen in the Pacific Wedding photo. I still think wild rose, or woodrose are your best options.
I vote for wood rose after seeing the photo of it.
I think its some kind of open rose or something too. I found this picture of a briar rose, I think its similar:
And I also think it is similar to an anemone:
I think sometimes sugar flowers are a bit of creativeness from the person who made it, you can be creative yourself and put whatever you want into a flower, and leave out the bits you don't. This could be some rose-magnolia-whatever else hybrid!!!
I said Camellia earlier -- I meant Gardenia -- sorry, long day!
Definitely not a Magnolia (I have one in my backyard)
Gardenia or Dogwood
