I am new to cake decorating and would like to start practicing making gumpaste flowers. Santa ( so I hear) is getting me started with moth orchid cutters for Christmas. What other flowers would go with these for a nice looking spray on a cake? Or are they best all alone. Thanks!

I think stephonotis would be beautiful with this orchid. And if you really want some inexpensive cutters to start with. Buy the Wilton gumpaste flower book and cutter kit. If I remember correctly it was about $30 for all the cutters and I think it does about 30 flowers. I have many expensive cutters and still go back to this all the time. I hope this has helped and good luck.... They are so much fun

In my pix I did a cake with moth orchids and I used stephanotis and ivy with it, letting the orchids be the focal point. You might try using filler flowers and leaves with the orchids.

Plus, Nancy, Michaels and Jo-Anns have the 40% (and now that it's Christmas-time, 50% & 60% off) coupons so the cost for the flower cutter set would be even less expensive.

I have none of those stores here in Durango. But I will check Hobby Lobby, they carry Wilton items. Thanks. I am looking forward to after the holidays when I can practice!

I would think Hobby Lobby has it, but if not here is the link to the kit on the Wilton website:
