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.

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!

try the plumeria flowers (frangipani) same thing.
i did some for a hawaiian wedding cake, they look really cool when done.
