This is the tutorial that was most helpful to me: http://www.flickr.com/photos/franjmc/2927935625/ you've got to scroll down partway down the page to find the link to the tutorial in the comments.

They are not as intimidating as they look. I would much rather do them than buttercream roses. Just remember you can do them way ahead. Store out of light or they will fade. And make extra just in case. Good luck.

Thanks for all your help !! I will check all these out, I'm planning on staring to make them on Wednesday, will make extra. I did master buttercream ones so shouldn't have any problem. My problem is I just want everything to be perfect!
