I've seen so many perfect ruffled tulips on the twilight cakes & I was hoping that someone can give me instructions on how to make them? (please please please!).
I'm still pretty new at cake decorating & my younger cousins birthday is coming up in a few months & she loves the twilight series, & I would love to try to make a twilight themed cake for her. If anyone out there can help me, I would appreciate it SO much! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks in advance,

So I made a super easy peasy one(check my pics) I used the wilton flower cutter set and followed their directions and just frilled the edges with a tooth pick and let dry over the end of the rolling pin that came with the set. If you can't get the set (got mine at Michaels) try to draw a template using three fat teardrop shapes(pointy ends connected at the center) spread apart so one end at 12 o'clock, one at 4 and one at 8, use an excato knife or something to cut them out of gumpaste or 50/50 fondant gumpaste. Arrange over a wax paper covered broom handle or something like it. Good luck, hope this helps!

I hope someone tells you!

Good luck with the snow!

Oh btw, I forgot to mention I made two like that and fit one inside the other one for a more ruffled, layered look. I also google image searched for Parrot tulips(that's what the flower is) to help go by.

Jeep_girl, so the one that you made for your twilight cake was made with the flower set? I think it looks great!!! I actually have the set (thank goodness, because I won't be getting out for a while to get anything)....can you tell me how to get the colors like that? (I haven't worked with fondant/gumpaste much at all)
Thanks for all your help!!!

I just used the gum paste straight and it was pure white and I just dipped a paint brush into Wilton's red and dabbed a bit here and there until I got the effect i wanted, easy easy.
