Do they make a cutter just for these. Or if not which cutter should be used and where is the best place to buy.

You must be wanting to make them in gp.
I would think a small apple blossom - or for that matter any small 5 petal round cutter w/work.
If you know how to make apple blossoms you've got it madeicon_smile.gif
Cherry blossoms differ in color depending on the variety of cherry, but basically they are a small 5 petal, slightly cupped blossom that is (usually) white in the center w/light pink edges. The center is a tiny yellow star w/many, many stamen.
Thin each petal edge - they can ruffle slightly. HTH

I agree if you can make an apple blossom, you can make a cherry blossom. Basically, cut out the flower, thin the edges, and cup ea. petal with the ball tool. For the centers I use a sm. ball of yellow gp and make spiked cuts on the top with cosmetic scissors. That gives an appearance of stamen. Do a google search for cherry blossom images and look at the coloring of the flowers. I just made a cake with cherry blossoms. I have a pic. in the gallery.
