My son and his fiance have decided to hurry up and get married. They just want a small ceremony and I want to make them a little wedding cake. Does anyone know where I can buy gum paste cherry blossom flowers? I will need them by the 15th of April. They are getting married in Kimono's and really enjoy the Japanese culture. I am on a bit of a budget for this cake. Any help will be very much appreciated.

Well if you don't want to make them maybe you could contact ebay or if you have to, the dollar tree here has some cute cherry blossoms, just as an emergency back up.

I haven't tried making them and I know I will not have the time between now and then. So I was hoping to buy them. Thank you for the suggestions I will check them out.

Just a slight detour from the original topic ... if I buy gumpaste flowers, can I add color to them? My bride is using Circus roses which are yellow with a dark orange/red on the edges and down the petals. I am still hoping to get them made, but I would like to have a back up plan. I have the dusts that I need, but wondered if the pre-made flowers would take color. Any advice?

Thanks!

The place I linked to above sells uncolored flowers that you can customize.

Now this is a little wedding but I want to make a two tier cake. How would a 9 in square look with a 6 in round on top look? Or does anyone have any suggestions? I did find some cherry blossoms any suggestion for decorating it simply? I am not the most creative sometimes! But I am so excited about the wedding.

I want to thank everyone who offered advice. The cake turned out nice. The kids liked it and we all enjoyed it. I am going to try and attach a picture of it here.
