I am working on some gum paste flowers and I am NOT a florist. I can make the flowers but I have a hard time with the grouping and placement.

This is a dummy cake that I am working on. It is a 12" sq with an 8"round stacked then a REALLY tall candle pillar and a 6" round on top. My orginal idea was to put a large grouping on the top cascading down and a smaller one on the bottom but now I'm thinking it should be the other way around.

You have to use a bit of imagination because the smaller group in not yet done.

Tell me what you think. BE HONEST too!! I can take it.

I also have to say that I am excited that I figured out how to add more than one photo!!! icon_lol.gif

The flowers look very good. You might want to consider curving the spray into backward C or an S shape. This will give a little softness and visual flow.

lovely! I like the large group of flowers on the top but then I like it on the lower teir also do you have any more flowers ?

the spray is perfect until you get to the 2 top calla lilies and they seem to jut out I agree they should be curved back towards the cake a bit.

Ok, I think it's done. it was hard to get a decent photo.
Tell me what you think of the fowers and what could be improved upon.

I agree with fondantgrl these flowers look SOO elegant ! I personally don't enjoy too many flowers - sometimes it's overwhelming!! But this is Perfecto!!

Good luck
