I have seen several pics of cakes with fondant daisies on them. Some of these look like they could have been made from a cookie cutter, some others look like they are individual petals. Does anyone have any suggestions on making these cute daisies - suggestions on pansies would be great too!

There are so many different styles of daisies. Can you link to pictures with specific daisies?

There are Daisy cutters, daisy plungers, royal icing daisies, buttercream daisies, it really depends on what look you are going for. Can you post a link to a picture that you like? That way we can see it and tell you how it was made.

cchunn, Wilton has a daisy cutter which is what I used for the fondant daisies I put on my small turquoise cake. Most of the fondant daisies I have seen appear to be made in a similar fashion.

Wow, I had no idea there were so many daisy tools! Here are a few pics of ones that I think are really nice.

I saw that with the second pic the daisies are made from gumpaste - but I still wonder how they got the great detail in the petals.

Thanks so much for the replies!!

I have a set of three from PME which I bought through Global Sugar Art. I like them because you can push the plunger to create veins in the petals. I have only practiced with them, so I don't have any cakes to show, but they were recommended to me by Kim_in_CajunCountry. Try to put her name in to see pics of her daisy cakes.

I agree with bellabiaggio , the second one is the pme cutter and it's one on top of another slightly turned. I think the first is a wilton cutter. Wilton makes teaching books like lesson one and two and so on. It shows how to do the daisies in one of those. Go to Michaels and surf through the book , I think they are like 4.00 each. Hope this helps you. I just bought the plunger PME one but have yet to use it. Sorry.

I have a large metal daisy cutter, 3 smaller platic ones aand a mold with about 5 sizes of centers. You can go as simple or as realistic as you want by looking at pictures of real daisies to see how many layers and sizes of petals each type has! I use a viening pin to imprint the texture for fancier daisies. Here's a pic of the ones I did this month.
