Hi,
I have seen some beautiful gum paste gerber daisies and would like a few pointers as how to make them..... I have done very little with fondant/gumpaste flowers as most of my customers want to sink their teeth into my rich creamy frosting and not have to "pull" something off first.....(mostly men...gggg) I love the look of the gerbers and could really use some in a day or two. Do you use the same cutters as the daisies?
Thanks

Hi,

Last week I made a square wedding cake. In this post I wrote how I made them:

These flowers aren't very tasty, but they are eye-catching!

I do like it when all I make for my cake is tasty icon_biggrin.gif, so I made them once out of marzipan. They were delicious, but very, very britle....

For these, I used these gerbera/daisy plungercutters:

I allowed each separate flower to dry two days before assembling.
The other cutters won't work with gum paste, I'm afraid! The leafs are tho thin...

Bye, Jozien.

Thank you! Thank you! Yes, your cupcake daisies are really pretty. I have had quite a few requests for them and I'll send for the cutters.
Thanks! Joanie
