I have had a request for cupcakes with different tropical flowers. except..i have no idea how to make tropical flowers. Does anyone know of any tutorials on how to make gumpaste or fondant tropical flowers??
Thanks soo much in advance!!!
I use the 5 petal rose cutter to make both plumeria and hibuscus. Very easy to do. Dust the centers with petal dust and viola!
If you look at the flower, it's easy to figure it out using that petal cutter.
Hope that helps.
someone just answered this same question for me a few days ago.they sent me this tutorial at www.toppartyideas.com-hibiscus-sugarpasteflowers.it seems fairly easy once you see someone else do it.
I found that tutorial, but I think the link is http://www.toppartyideas.com/hibiscus-sugarpaste-flowers/. kokopuff, I couldn't get yours to work. Hopefully this one will work.
I can see why it didn't work,for some reason it highlighted .it---that was just a period and the start of a new sentence lol! thanks for posting it correctly!
Those little hibiscus are sooo cute! Great idea, I always get hung up on making then too realistic. The color combinations and the veining on the petals make them perfect!
Thanks so much!!!
try the plumeria flowers (frangipani) same thing.
i did some for a hawaiian wedding cake, they look really cool when done.
