I have to make this cake in a couple months and was curious if anyone knew what kind of flowers these were??

Not sure if they're a real flower or a "fantasy flower" any help would be appreciated. I thought they kinda looked like dogwoods, but then they don't!

mark-mexicana is correct. there is a tutorial under forums . The title is g/p flowers , something like that. It might be elisa strausse. Anyway you might know that already.

I did similar flowers on the cake in my avatar. I used the tutorial on youtube...

My only comment is she says to let the petals dry a bit and I let mine dry too long so they weren't workable to get the shape just right.

Super easy flower to do. Good luck.

You guys have been an enormous help!

I'd rather just order the stinkin things but I need them for 2 cakes this summer, one wants dk. purple centers (colors are dk/lt purple) and the other wants them blushed w/ orange and dk. purple centers (colors are dk purple and neon orange) lol no chance of ordering those with purple centers! lol

Thank you guys again!! It's funny because last summer I asked what kind of flowers was on a particular cake I had to make and everyone answered anemone as well.........why is it that I don't recognize these flowers??? Guess I better figure them out, they seem to be getting very popular!

KHalstead - they aren't that hard to make at all!

Elisa Strauss has a tutorial in her first book on how to make them! I even found it on the internet once. Let me see if I can find it.

Ok - I found it. Here's the link to her blog. Just in case this link doesn't take you to the right place. Go to the posts in 2009 and it will be about 3/4 of the way down the page.

LOL! Apparently, I'm an idiot - because I didn't read everyone else's responses. And you had already posted it.

Oh well. Stamp the word DUMB on my forehead! icon_lol.gif
