Is there some secret to doing this? I don't normally have trouble telling my fingers what to do but I have to tell you, these plumeria have me stumped. I have no trouble thinning them or making that fold on the left side and laying on the table they look terrific. When I try to put them into that spiral they flip and flop around and crack. Do I wait until they have dried? Anybody got the technique down? They look so freakin' simple!

Nevermind. I just did what I should have done first and searched this forum. Found a fantastic pictorial tutorial so now I'm going to try again. Thanks anyway.

Lovemypups would you mind PMing me with the link to that tutorial? I need to make some plumerias for a cake later this month and I'm in the same boat you were.

TIA!!! Very much!!

Here is the tutorial I've used - I found them quite easy to make! I've used them on a few of my cakes now...
