Can you make gumpaste/fondant sunflowers with a leaf cutter of sorts? I couldn't find a matching cutter for a cake pic that was emailed to me.

Does anyone have any alternatives to a "sunflower" cutter, please?

Thank you.

I don't know what size you want, but I just made some with a daisy cutter and thought they turned out nicely. I will try to attach a pic, but if doesn't work check out my gallery to see them.

Thank you. I'll try that. The petals in the photo sent to me had short, fat petals, but I can't duplicate that without ridges.

I appreciate you attaching the photo.

Thanks. icon_smile.gif

short, fat petals...but without ridges(ridges like a leaf cutter has?)...what about a teardrop cutter? If you need the lines, and you don't have something to impress them in the 'petals', use a toothpick or, I think it was Loucinda that gave a great tip(don't think it was specifically for sunflowers though)...use a cornhusk(sold in packages for use in making ...tamales, I think)
