I had a girl I went to high school with email me on facebook and ask me to do her wedding cake. I have NO experience doing flowers. I'm I crazy to say yes and make this cake. I have a pretty good idea on how to do the cake with the fondant..... HELP?!?!

hard to see flowers in pic but if you feel confident doing the fondant on the cake I think you could figure out the flowers!!!

Are those orchids? Either way, how far off is the wedding? Just spend a lot of time on youtube looking up gumpaste tutorials. How else are you to learn if you don't do it? I would say yes to this cake, as it will teach something new.

wow is that fondant. i think they have this flower on the wilton web site. as said i'd practice try roses with the circles, caly lilly, so you can get the feel, i think i might be kind of hard to start out with this type of flower to start.

Those look like fresh orchids to me, not gumpaste. Fresh orchids can be set right on the cake at the last minute. The live pretty long without water.

I would use Fresh flowers whenever I can. Gumpaste are great, but no one ever eats them anyway.

Good luck.....

There is thread that might help about alternatives to making your own flowers:
