Does anyone know what kind of flower the little blue one is next to the pink rose?? I'd love to make the arrangement for my first wedding cake. I know how to make roses, just need to search youtube for tutorials of the other flowers.....if I knew what they were! icon_redface.gif

It's just a 5 petal blossom. Can use a cherry, apple, or other blossom cutter or cut them by hand.

Great, I actually have the Wilton gumpaste cutter kit. I know there is a apple blossom in there. Thanks so much. I think the big pink flower might be a peony. I should ask my MIL, she is the flower expert.

you're right-the big pink one is a peony (i would love to do that)

You could always try contacting Anne at the PinkCakeBox and ask her. She's very nice and I'm sure she'd be willing to help you out (and yes that does look like a peony).

Looks like a narcissus to me.

It looks like a "Forget Me Not" to me. I googled an image, and that's what came up.

Oh I was looking at the larger one. Yes the smaller is a forget me not.

Can't wait till I can not only identify all the flowers, but make them too!

Shoot I just buy mine. I can't make flowers and I can buy them cheap (gumpaste) so I have no problem just purchasing them rather than making them.

It looks like an orchid to me, but in a "fantasy" color-not a lifelike flower.

the flower you are referring to is called larkspur they come with more than one on a stem they are used for filler flowers in an arrangement. I used to own a flower shop so I know this flower.
