Hi all. I posted a question on the Pink Cake Box blog spot but wanted to see if anyone here knew the answer. Can you tell me what flower this is?

I thought it might be a type of gardenia but can't zoom in close enough to really tell.

Any ideas?

Thanks!!

Looks like a fantasy flower to me. I think they just used some medium petal cutters and a longer leaf cutter.

It looks like a fantasy orchid & lily to me.

Curious about the exposed wires on most of the large petals. It's really not a desired outcome, but it's hard to get those darn wires to not poke through when you vein the petal too hard. Maybe they like the look. It's hard to tell.

Thanks Rae and SkisInOkinawa. I may see if I can find a cutter that has a similar shaped petal and go with that.

I'm not sure on the exposed wires either, just a pic from Pink Cake Box's website so I didn't pay that much attention to that detail.

Thanks again.

if you use white wire on white flowers you can sometimes avoid that.

They look like the magnolia cutters that Scott Clark Woolly uses.

I buy very thin wire wrapped in white paper when I'm inserting it into individual petals.

Thanks Artscallion, I'll look into that cutter.

I'm not worried about the wires on my versions since my bride wants the flowers to be apple red.
