I am fairly new to caking and now that the Wilton classes are done I want to focus on gumpaste flowers. I love sunflowers and want to practice those next. What cutter do you all suggest. I am placing an order today so I wanted to order it.

TIA

Wow! I'm making sunflowers this morning for two cakes this weekend. I'm going to use my Wilton daisy cutter, there not as big as I would like but I have no choice. I'm going to make two size. I live in Ks the sunflower state and we have sunflowers everywhere, so I've been looking at all of them getting ideals. Have fun making sunflowers.

A and H supplies has PME sunflower/gerber daisy cutters. I have them and love them. They have 5 sizes, I also have the center mould with has various size centers. Someone directed me to a tutorial about making centers by pressing a ball of fondant up against a sieve to give it the impression.

I just use the Wilton Daisy cutters too. Make the center big and brown so it looks more like a sunflower. I use tip #233 ( the grass tip) to make the impressions in the center.
