I'm in Northern IN; I doubt it would reach you in time......ssorryicon_sad.gif

The only place you would find one is a cake supply shop. HL & Michael's won't have them.

Some of the most amazingly talented local cake decorators around here use the Wilton 6-petal blossom cutters for roses. I've seen them done with these cutters at various Days of Sharing and they turn out lovely. The plus side is that they are cheap and available at Michael's.

I cant get a 5 petal cutter here in canada and I was wonder about these wilton cutters...do you know how to use them to make 3D fondant roses?
Thanks

I don't know about the 3D fondant roses, but I have the cutters that came in the Wilton kit at Michaels in Canada called the step savin rose bouquet flower cutter set. You just snip in between the petals to make it so you can shape them. It was a little expensive but the six petal cutters would work the same way I guess.
Here is the link and I hope it works!

I have used the 6 petal cutter before and you cut out the fondant or gumpaste, then place it on the thin foam and thin and ruffle the edges with the ball side of the ball too. Then use the side of your spatula or embosser and cut between the petals some, not all the way to the center. Then you place the toothpick with the tear drop of the fondant and gumpaste through the center and arrange the petals however you like. you keep going until it is as full as you would like. Hope that helps.

I am in the DFW area. Try "The Cake Carousel" in north Dallas or "Elizabeth's" cake shop in Euless just southwest of the airport off of 183. I would call them first but they both carry a great variety of professional cake decorating supplies. Much better than Michaels or Hobby Lobby.
Hope this helps. icon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

im pretty sure i read something about being able to use a cutter with an extra petal, and when you cut your flower, you can just remove the extra one, and reshape it so it sits better, and looks like a normal 5 petal would.
