Can anyone recommend a common cutter to make a flowered lei? This is kind of a last minute cake and I don't have time to order anything special --it's a bridal shower luau cake.

Thanks for any help!

I made lillies using the Wilton lily cup and royal icing to make a lei. I just positioned them side by side on the cake so it looked like a lei. There is a picture in my gallery of the purple flowers on a sheet cake.

Hope that helps.


P.S. I see you are in AK. I grew up on Anchorage!

I am working on a hula dancer cake and have made some simple fondant hibiscus blossoms with a five-petal "rose" cutter. They look pretty good, I think -- not totally realistic, but more so than the typical party-store lei!

Wilton rose cutter set, comes with three sizes of five-petal flower shapes. Plus a calyx and a leaf. Bought it at Michael's.

Thank you both for the suggestions. I found a sugar lei in the galleries and PM'd the maker. She said she had also used the 5 petal rose cutter, frilled the edges and threaded the flowers onto fishing line.

Thanks again!
