I have to do a wedding cake with a large black eyed susan on the top tier - well I just did a wedding cake last week with sunflowers (in my photos). I looked up black eyed susans & they look just like sunflowers to me What's the difference? Or what can I do differently between the two? (I made the sunflowers from my Wilton daisy cutters.)
Thanks in advance for any help
they look similar. but a black eyed susan has a much smaller center than a sunflower. Even small sunflowers have a larger center. I would say that's probably the biggest obvious difference.
looking at ur pics i would say you could definitely use the same cutter, but rather than a flat center, make a textured ball with piped detail for the center.
Also the petals of a black eyed susan tend to hang back from the center, rather than go straight out.
Thanks for the advice!
Hey, do you work at the Pink Cake Box?
I don't work there, but I spent most of the summer interning there, and it was a great experience.
