One more thing, do you think that can be made with rose petal cutters? that's what it looks like to me.
I am getting ready to make a cake with flowers that are very similar. I am using a large and medium rose cutters. My instructions say to cut out the large flower and to run my ball tool around each petal to soften it and then to use a veiner to vein each petal. Then do the same with the medium cutter and put the medium flower inside the large one. The black dots can be make with either royal icing or fondant.
Looks like a peony (Paeonia) to me. Good luck...
Oh and you also need to put the flowers in a round former so they will dry cupped like in the picture.
it looks like a magnolia....i have no idea how to make it.
It looks more like a camellia than anything else to me, except for the center.
Maybe this is a "fantasy flower" that isn't really a replica of any particular specimen.
I actually found the instructions for it in the Book by Toba Garret "The well Decorated Cake" that I just picked up in response to a different question I posted here also.
2 for 1 can't get any better than that.
I have the book but am too lazy to go look it up ~ what is it?
