Hi, I haven't posted in awhile but I am getting back to cakes after taking a break for a few months. My sister would like me to make her cake.

http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1046543

This is the cake that she wants and I am not sure how to go about it. I cannot find an in stock hydrangea cutter anywhere for starters. Does anyone know where I can get one to make flowers like these? How far ahead can I make the flowers for this cake. I have made flowers but would like to work on them ahead of time and do not want them to fade. Also any advice on coloring them? I need basically the same shades of pink. Shoud I use luster dust? Do these flowers nee stamens or what else can I use for the centers? Any help at all is appreciated!! thanks

Scott Woolley has a hydrangea cutter on his site and Nick Lodge has hydrangeas in one of his videos (I forget which one exactly.) Nick's videos are available at Global Sugar Art. Oh, I forgot to add, these are gumpaste flowers from Scott and Nick.

You can make them ahead of time. If you don't want them to fade don't color them until closer to the wedding. Or store in a dark dry place.

I have some instructions where you use a normal 4 petal blossom cutter. PM me if you would like them.

http://www.discountsugarflowers.com/detail.aspx?ID=860 This link will take you to a site that sells them pre-made if you decide making 500 of them a bit much. Then you will just have to dip and swirl.
incidentally your sister has excellent taste that is a lovely cake.

Jenn, thanks for the link to that site!

That cake is beautiful. I love it's simplicity and elegance. Oh, and it's pink-ness icon_smile.gif
