Everytime I look at my gerber, I see a sunflower. Can anyone give me some tips?

Your daisy is beautiful, why do you need tips?? I went outside on my deck and looked at my Gerbers, and the only thing I would do is take my grass tip (233) and put some texture on the center. Just lightly make impressions on the finished center before assembling your petals. Where did you get your Gerber cutter? It is a beautiful flower - well done.

Beautiful!!! We have the exact same color gerbers around here. How did you do the smaller petals that around the center?

i felt exactly the same when i made my gerbers (i ended up buying real for the cake) i agree to change the colour that might help and for me, i used the wilton daisy cutters (the nesting set) and my petals ended up pointier so all i saw was daisy. you flower does look spectacular though

I took the advice from other posts and got the PME cutters from global sugar art. (Awesome service, got them in like 4 days)The smaller petals are done with the smallest cutter, I got the 3 pack, cut in 1/2 length wise.

Havingfun....thankyou for the advice. I am working on some new centers now. I think that will help. I will be doing them i fall colors, so I'll update with finished with them.
