I've seen several beautiful cakes with fondant/gumpaste gerbera daisies-how do I make these? What tool(s) do I need and where do I get them? Does anyone have any tips/tricks they can share? I want to decorate my daughter's birthday cake with them, and I need to start practicing! Thanks so much!

Some links (hopefully they work)-these are what I am hoping to make:

Yes, use the PME plunger/cutter. Cut 2 for each flower. I textured each petal of mine with the "mouth tool" from GSA - then make a center, I used a clean piece of screen material to texture the centers. Here is a pic of the daisies I made - you can do the same for the gerbera ones:

The wedding cake in "My Photos" has blue ones. I just bought the cutter from Sugarcraft and use gumpaste.

The cake I made with the gerbera is in my gallery. I used the plunger cutters from country kitchen sweet art. HTH

I recently posted a cake with Gerbera daisies. I also used the PME plunger from Country Kitchen Sweetart and followed the instructions from
http://www.make-fabulous-cakes.com/gum-paste-gerbera-flower.html.
They're fairly easy to make just time consuming and very fragile. Be sure to make extras. icon_smile.gif
