I just got my first order for a wedding cake and the bride wants stargazer lily flowers on it. I'd like to learn to make my own, but can't find any good examples on the internet. Any suggestions?

If I can't make my own, I'd like to buy them because she REALLY wants some. Any advice on the best places to buy fondant stargazers (that's cheap?) Thanks!!

See if this tutorial come up on the web: Just used this, this past April to make fondant Stargazers for my daughter's 16th birthday. If this does not come up. It is Dusky Rose Flower tutorial website. It is wonderful. HTH

Sorry I forgot to mention ,there are some on-line sites for flowers. I order mine from Pfeil and Holing. Others rec. I think it's called wholesale sugar flowers? Oh yeah I made my flowers with wilton fondant and gumtex. I love the stuff. Thats all I have using so far. Again, HTH

There is a very good tutorial right here on a search for asiatic lily. I used it as a base, but incorporated some other techniques I had learned, to do the stargazers for my daughter's wedding cake.

When I don't have time to make them, I order flowers from Cal Java. They are reasonable, and very well packed, I've never had any broken pieces.

Thanks everyone! I went ahead and ordered some veiners from Dusky Rose and am hoping to get them soon so I can practice. If not, I'll definitely look at the sites you guys listed and see which one looks best for the bride.

Thanks again! Y'all are great! (Yes...I'm from the south...)
