I'm supposed to be making a big black eyed susan to put on top of this bride's cake. OMG. I should have checked my biggest daisy cutter, because even my biggest one looks small on top of a 6" round!

Is there a black eyed susan template out there? Or a large daisy template? And maybe I could cut it out by hand? It's too late to order anything now & the biggest ones I saw were only 2" across anyway. I don't think that's what the bride meant when she said big!

Thanks in advance

Why not make individual petals? The center can be a rounded-top or flat circle, then pipe stars to fill it in. The petals can be stuck into that or just laid on the cake.... HTH
Make plenty of petals.....do you have some kind of long, plain leaf cutter??

Thanks kakeladi - I was just thinking of that & no, I don't have any long petal cutters...I may just do it freehand.

You could try rolling out your fondant a but thicker than normal. Then cut out the shape using the cutters you have. Finally ball the petals thinner to elongate them the extra thickness should give you the length you need.
