I was wondering if anybody could explain how you put a full gumpaste flower topper on a wedding cake?
I have done several rose cake toppers, but with them I cut a styrofoam ball in 1/2, cover it with fondant, and stick the roses in it. This gives if a full rounded look without putting anythihng into the cake.
My wedding coming up, has numerous types of lilies, with the main flower the calla lily, as well as other flowers. I want it to look full, but I'm not quite sure how to go about this.
Thanks for your help.
can't help but here's a bump
ps. the site is acting wacky and a lot of people can't get in, so if you don't get an answer, wait till seems to be running smoother and try again.
My hubs does my flowers and he makes the callas in various shapes and scale for the overall effect. For a topper he makes a roundish design and makes smallish flowers and leaves to fill in. Before puting on the cake I cover a cardboard or plastic base to match whatever it will sit on. HTH.
