May 2008 Family Circle Cover-
I have no idea what kind of flowers they are (maybe peony or cabbage rose). Cover pic below
I looked on their website, but they are now featuring the June issue. Can you, or someone, scan the cover?
I believe those are "cabbage roses." If you do a Google Image search you will get lots of photo results, maybe help you figure out how to do them from there. I don't remember ever seeing any directions for making them.
I wanted to say English (cabbage) roses at first, but looking at the leaves and the buds, they might be begonias, also.
Take a look at the table of contents, and see if there is a list item which says On The Cover, or Cover Story. If there is, then it will either tell you what is in the photo, or direct you to a page in the magazine where that picture will be repeated, attached to an article.
Then please, if you find it, let us know.
I tried looking for the cover info-they only list the flower stylist.
I think they are called ranunculus flowers. They are similar to a rose but more and tighter petals. I saw someone's website (cake decorator) who had them but can't remember which site.
I think you're right. I just looked at some nursery photos, and they are closer to the flowers in question than any others I tried.
These are peonies. Before my last move, I had some of these in my yeard and I absolutely love them! They come in the most amazing colors.
I agree with Tracycakes. I've got Peonies in my front yard ready to bloom right now.
I agree. They are Peonies. I had some by my front steps before I moved, too. They are beautiful flowers.
peonies-aren't they the type that the ants get all over?
anyone know how to make them with icing?
lol. Yes, they get ants all over. But they're beautiful! I saw a cutter for peony petals somewhere on line, can't quite remember if it was Nicholas Lodge or where. I'd open another browser and check for you, but then my computer would freeze
Yup...I say peonies...
Global Sugar Art has several different cutter sets for those flowers. I was just talking to him about them yesterday. Great Company!!!
