I was trying to explain these flowers to a decorator friend of mine and I called them ribbon flowers and she had no clue what I was talking about. I have always called them ribbon flowers, ir there another name for them?

Quilling.

After the hobby that involves using narrow paper strips to do the same thing on a smaller scale. My sister was into it in high school, but back then scrapbooking wasn't as popular and it became impossible to find quilling supplies.

HAHA, I am gonna have to eat that one. I insisted that they were called ribbon flowers made with long ribbons of GP or fondant rolled to the shape of petals. I tried explaining them to her and then drawing it, but she looked at me like I have just sprouted a third ear.

Thanks Tex!

This is probably my favorite Colette Peters cake - LOVE it!! I've tried quilling with fondant/gumpaste - it's not as easy as it looks! icon_cry.gif
