I asked this question elsewhere, but Sherri advised me to start a thread so I could get it more noticed.
I had once come across a link showing a picture tutorial of some sort of flower, and I can't remember which it was. (I think it was a spray showing how to make the individual flowers, and it might have been on an online store website). And then, at the end, they showed how to make little ladybirds as well. Which could be used to scatter around leaves, petals etc.
For the life of me, I can't remember more detail and don't know where exactly I had seen it. Would anyone be able to help?
lady birds? Or lady bugs? You have mentioned both.
I just did a google search and a flickr.com hit came up about making fondant ladybugs. I can not get onto the site right now, but you might want to try there. Just google "How to make a fondant ladybug"
sweetflowers, they're both the same. In UK we call them ladybirds, and in US they're called ladybugs.
RetiredNavyChief, I tried that search after you said, and I'm still on the hunt.
Is this what you are looking for - its on the Culpitts site
There are some great tutorials for flowers on there as well
Edited to add....
OK - looks like the gremlins are NOT going to allow this so try and work this out for yourself
You're an absolute gem!! Thanks a zillion thats the one!!
When I tried googling Cu lpitts, their website didn't have the 'how to'. But then it seems they have another website on which theres all this.
Thanks again ApplegumKitchen!
