Hi everyone,

I have a potential MOB that has a "vision" of her cake with 4 or 5 gumpaste calla lilies tied with a bow lying in front of the bottom tier of her cake and 2 or 3 hanging over the edge of the top tier. I have done callas before, but never with a full stem (she is thinking like a foot long). Have any of you done this? If so I would love to see some pictures and also how you did the stems so they looked real.

I looked in the gallery, but I only see them with just the flower.

Thanks!

Anytime I think of Calla's I think of Edna - you should PM her and see if she has any ideas.

I think it would be BEAUTIFUL!!

Good luck! let us know what you find out!

Her tutorial is fabulous...and definitely made a difference in the quality of my callas! I took your advice and PM'd her and she's already responded with a great explanation of how to do this. Thanks for the suggestion!

It would be great if you can post her explaination.

I'm sure others are curious and we might bombard her with PM's for explainations too.
