does anyone know of a good website to get instructions for making flowers? I am particularly looking for orchid how-to's. TIA

What medium do you want to use? Gumpaste, fondant, buttercream, Marzipan? Have you tried U.Tube? There are a lot of videos on there but I am not sure if any on orchids.
Wilton has a gumpaste flower kit......contains cutters, tools, book instructions....for around $25-30. Not badicon_smile.gif
Another idea is to get yourself a silk (rubber?)flower and take it apart to see how it is constructed and get a feel for size etc.

As kakeladi said youtube is the place to go. I just did a search and found this (is is the first of 6 videos).

Thanks - the video looks like it will help! GP classes are hard to come by around here!
