Hello. I have been asked to recreate this wedding cake. I'm not sure where the bride got this cake so it might have been from one of the cake artist in here. I was just wondering what kinds of little flowers these are and if there is a cutter for these. I can't tell whether they are royal icing and piped or gumpaste and cut, which is what I'm hoping for. Can anyone help me?
I'm very experienced in fondant with birthday cakes but this is my first real wedding cake. I've done an anniversary cake in all white fondant which was essentially just like a wedding cake. I have not done the draping (I guess that is what it is called) along the bottom of the tiers either so any advice on that would be appreciated.
I would say maybe just different sized blossom cutters and different kinds of edible pearls, glitter, and sugar around them. Maybe a few of these:
Maybe these cutters for the flowers:
These flowers are from a plunger cutter set. I have seen them done before. They are actually very easy.
Hope that helps
To make the draped part, measure around the cake and divide it into the number of sections you want it to have. Then cut pieces of fondant to that length, and all to the same width...about four times wider than you want the drape to be. Use dowels under and on top of the fondant to make the pleat, then take out the dowels, pinch the ends and put the piece on the cake.
Thank you so much everybody. I started looking through my stuff and found the apple blossom cutters in a few different sizes in another flower cutter gum paste set I bought awhile back.
