I am hoping you lovely people can offer me some guidence. I dont make a lot of flowers but i have to mak esome daffodils for a cake for next week and have watched the tutorials that I can find but none of them offer a realistic looking stamen in the Daffodils. Has anyone made some and if so how did you do the stamen?
These really do have to look as real as physically possible and will be my first time.I have only ever made roses once
I just looked at some pictures online but of the 4 I looked out they all had different centers. Do you have a real one you are basing yours off of to post? One of them looked sorta like the lily stamens.
I dont have a picture I was just really wondering if anyone has made them before and how they did it.
In my mind I am going to try and use some wire stamens and adjust the centre one to look more like the lily stamen that it resembles.
But I would be very grateful if anyone has a different idea.
Here's a good picture of a daffodil's center. http://www.mooseyscountrygarden.com/flower-bulbs/bright-yellow-daffodil.html
If you can get some stamens like this http://www.wilton.com/store/site/product.cfm?id=01B89500-423B-522D-FA07194868CD9579 the fluffy ones would work for the outer ones and then these http://www.wilton.com/store/site/product.cfm?id=3E30E979-475A-BAC0-516A002923F7B912 would work for the center one. Just cut it longer than the others and tape them all together. You can dip the white stamens in yellow color mixed with vodka to tint them, or dip them in pale green and then use yellow petal dust on the ends of the fluffy ones. I used the Wilton ones as an example because they're the most available ones here, but if you have a cake decorating shop near you they might have something better.
thanks for those links texas_rose I will have to have a look and see if I can get those in the UK
