I would like to make fondant poinsettia. Does anyone know where I can find good, detailed instructions? I have taken the Wilton class and I am not fond of the royal icing poinsettia. Your help would be greatly appreciated!

Go to the forum "How Do I?" In fact it is in the same fourm that you posted your question and there is a sitcky at the top of the list that is has hundreds of tutorials TONS OF FREE FLOWER TUTORIALS. They are arranged in alphabetical order and there are two for poinsettia's which are very good and they have several different sets of cutters on Global Sugar.

I made a poinsettia wedding cake and used both tutorials mentioned in Peridot's post. http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1291905
I ordered the cutters and gumpaste from Global Sugar Art. I used the red and green mexican gumpaste by Marcela Sanchez and it was a dream to work with. You can roll it really, really thin and and it stays flexible longer than other gumpaste. The color was beautiful, I didn't have to add any color to it.
The instructions seem a little overwhelming at first but once you get your method down, they are pretty quick to make. PM me if you have any questions, I am no expert but I may be able to lend a hand!

Rylan, thanks again for that list! I don't know how many times I have used it. It is now a bookmark for me. I have so many that I want to learn in my "spare" time. Thanks!

No problem jlynnw. I'm just a second hand person because I actually didn't make the tutorials--just compiled them, hehe. I'm glad you got the chance to make use of them =]

Rylan, just getting that list together took some doing. If we all knew where to find it all, we would not always have the topic of how to. I think maybe this weekend I might give a new flower a try!

The poinsettia tutorials Ryan is referring are the same ones that I referred to in my post. They are found in the forum "How Do I" and the sticky TONS OF FREE FLOWER TUTORIALS!!! Easy to find for future reference.

Thanks for the advice! BTW, help a old lady out here. What does "PM" mean? I am new to this and I see that someone put for me to "PM" them for help. I would love too if I just knew how to do that. icon_smile.gif

ceeceebee.....as stated, PM means to send that person a private message. If you look below the post you will see a small box with the initials PM....just click on that box and another screen will appear. Just type in your "Subject" and then the body of your message in the larger box. Hope this helps. Good luck...everyone has to learn new things. Also, when you see initials/characters like PM or maybe BC...just click on these with your mouse and the meaning of the initials shows. A lot of posters abbreviate their words or meaning, so it's good to know how to determine what they are talking about.
