Hi Everyone,

Does anyone have any idea about how to make these flowers? I'm not even sure what they're called.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!
LL

Hi qwilson and welocme to CC. It looks to me like you could problably use any four or five petal flour cutter to make these. Roll you gumpaste real thin cut your flowers out and sit them in a cupped surface to dry. A cup with a piece of aluminum foil would do the trick. To make the centers use more gumpaste or fondant and stick them in with a tiny bit of water again let dry then color and place them on your cake. Good luck!!

Hm. not with those centers. At least, none of the tulips in my garden have a center like that.

They could actually be fantasy flowers. Remember that not every flower on a cake is an actual flower! I've seen a flower similar to that before, but I can't recall the name.

i may be misremembering this, but didn't the cake girls make this cake on "amazing wedding cakes" to match a fabric swatch? if you could find that episode on line or on your tv you might be able to get more information.

I was thinking that exact thing. The cake they did was very similar to this with this type of flower.

icon_biggrin.gif Thank you, Thank you, Thank you drakegore and newmansmom icon_biggrin.gif

That cake was exactly the one Cakegirls worked on. I was able to find a video of the episode and got some tips from it.

Now all I have to do is give it a go. Wish me luck, I'm still pretty new at this.

Thanks again!
