If you get the cutter, will you post a link to where you bought it from please. I have a bride who is doing a cupcake wedding and wants to incorporate hydrangeas. Thanks! icon_smile.gif

yes, i have the hydrangea cutter and veiner set. love it.. i am sure globalsugarart sells them.. they are by sunflower sugarart.. hth i use mine for chocolate clay also.. and g/p.. scott woolley sells the molds for the centers. you can make them .. by rolling small amt. of g/p and then make the cross with a knife.. the mold .of course does it for you.. the cutter/veiner set doesn,t have the center mold. nick lodge probably sells it too.

Go to www.globalsugarart.com and search hydrangea....you will see the cutter and veiner set.

Also www.firstimpressionsmolds.com has a nice center maker.

scott clark woolley sells a great cutter and veiner for hydrangea and if you don't want to make the center by hand, you can order that from him also. His prices are very reasonable and his shipping is so fast, its almost unbelievable. I wouldn't doubt if you ordered right now, that you'd have it by thursday.

It does have a center on the mold/impression part of it. If you look on her site at her gallery, you can see some her hydrangeas. I do not have anything close up to see it but Ive used her cutters/veiners as well for most of my flowers (you can see them in my photos on here).

I bought my cutter, center mold, and veiners from Nicholas Lodge. I love them. I believe I bought the cutter separate and the mold and veiners were the same item.

It depends on the look you want. A real hydrangea has a bunch in one little ball. When you wire them together, you want to do them in three's and fives, and make some lower than the rest to create the ball. If your putting them on cupcakes without wires, then I would say in odd numbers like three or five will look good. Good luck and dont forget to post a pic!
