Alright, I FINALLY got my Sunflower Sugar Art Dogwood cutter and mold. I have been sitting happily making blossoms. My dear mother came over and told me I had them upside down. I have searched on Google images, and now I am really confused. Do the petals turn up (as in a cup) or turn down??? Pleeezzzzz help!!!

they cup up when first blooming then they fan out but the edges still cup up and sometimes the very tips flip backwards
