Hey everyone, I have a dilemma.. I have a bride who is having a fall flower theme cake, she wants STRAWFLOWERS. I really do not want to use silks for this, and was wondering if anyone out there has any clue or idea how to make these either with RI or BC I don't know about gumpaste? the wedding is Aug. 30. so I still have a few days to get them figured out but needed some help.
ANY guidance will be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance.
To me the strawflowers resemble daisys, except for the center. You can try making a daisy in RI, then build the center with petal like strokes building into the center. I would use petal dust to color the edges and centers. Personally i think they would be a bit better to make from gumpaste or fondant.
Ooh--I would go gum paste all the way. Maybe use a chrysanthemum or carnation cutter?
thanks everyone. I am thinking gumpaste/fondant is the way to go too! wish me luck.
