I don't think I've ever seen a buttercream calla lily...

I don't think that I have either. It will be interesting to see what you come up with.

I have a friend who is a decorator who did them. They were awesome. She used a book (actually of mine) for the instructins. I will try to find and post the name of the book. Something about buttercream flowers???

I wonder if you could do it with what sugarshack uses for her dam on her cakes, its real thick buttercream that you can roll into a ball???? I would ask her.

Ummm... just for the record, that pic above looks like daffodils, not callas. I could be wrong, wont be the first time, I would like to know how to do the calla as well.

I found the instructions in Wilton.com just type in calla lilly. There is a link that also shows a picture.

Cool, that is complely doable!!! Great research. By the way, I thought the OP was using the pic above for the example of a calla lily, sorry for the confusion.
