If anyone can help me out I need to make tulips for a last minute july 5th wedding. I tried the wilton way with the gumpaste book and I really did not like the style. I was looking for instructions on making them per petal. Please Help! icon_cry.gif

I agree with you on the Wilton one. They don't even look like tulips. In the book I have they show the gumpaste ones next to fresh tulips and they are just not right (JMO). I would like to know too.

check out the tulip cake pic I just posted called Tulip Cake. I think the flowers look good?? And you can continue the cut of each petal down to the center to make individual petals.

The only way i know to make a tulip (look in my pictures) is by petal (never done any wilton method anything). But you would need tulip cutters (or you could freehand the shape), a silicone impression mold, and egg molds to get the shape. Sorry I realize I'm not being much help lol.

go to craft store... get plastic tulip flowers.. take apart the flower.. use the petals for a guide to cut (leaving one tulip intact to go by for a guide).. also.. if the fake tulip has a vein in it use it to vein the gp with icon_smile.gif

I think CC had a hiccup icon_smile.gif

that wasn't my idea.. but I knew LOTS of people have done this I even have a crazy friend who blows up the pics of the cutters and just prints those as guides (crazy friend is on here somewhere LOL) icon_smile.gif
