Hi everyone! I'm doing a cake for a former student of mine and she sent me this picture, wanting the flowers in gumpaste. The problem is, I cannot figure out from this picture what the flowers are! Can anyone help? Thanks very much! thumbs_up.gif

after enlarging the picture. I swear they resemble cherry blossoms, just the wrong color. http://www.som.soton.ac.uk/staff/martin/photo/images/plants/plants/cherry_tree/blossom/DSC_0519.jpg

look at the flower in the front corner..on bottom tier.

Poppies are my guest. I did red one that look just like them.

I also think that they are Poppies I googled and saw some that looked like that.

I agree with Tesso. They look like the decorator just messed up the color on some cherry blossoms.

Thanks everyone! I'm inclined to think they are poppies too, but I just heard from her and she didn't know what they were, just liked the color. She now wants orange Hibiscus for the flowers. Whatever. icon_biggrin.gif

I know, it's hard to tell from that picture. She wasn't sure what it was either, just that she liked the contrasting royal blue and dark orange motif. I appreciate all the help!! icon_biggrin.gif

Well that's just great, now she wants orange flowers "exactly" like the picture. I told her it's not going to happen, replications NEVER look like the picture. So we settled on a fantasy flower along the lines of the Anemone flower. Sheesh!! icon_cool.gif

Well I did the cake today and it looked great. Bride and everyone were very happy with it. If this photo glitch ever gets fixed I'll post a picture. I did fantasy flowers along the lines of the anemone flower. Thanks for all your help! icon_biggrin.gif
