I am not up to making 30 gumpaste orchids for an upcoming wedding cake, but searching Google has been a headache trying to find gumpaste orchids (some green, some pink, at least 3").

Does anyone out there have a favorite website to purchase gumpaste flowers? GSA didn't have the flowers I am looking for. icon_sad.gif

Yes I did, but I didn't see the orchids I need. DSF has them in both the pink and green...

Cal java has nice flowers...most of the gumpaste flowers I see being sold don't look as good as homemade, but theirs do, especially their Signature section.

I've seen a lot of people popping up on www.etsy.com with them. They're beautifully done and made to order, so you can get the color you want. I would be hesistant about not knowing where they're coming from, but that's your decision. Anyway, just something I recently noticed.

Can't help on bigger, but you can always airbrush them whatever colors you need for the "brighter"

I made the mistake of showing her a flower that I purchased from cakedeco last year - she loved it and they no longer carry it!

As much as I know CC isn't friends with Sugar Craft, I can only find a 5" orchid there. I am still searching, though.

Yes, I will have to buy white and airbrush them - finally a reason to buy an airbrush! Sep is going to be an expensive month, I think I also have to buy the cricut for another wedding cake... icon_eek.gif

Did not mean to sound rude, looking back at my post it seems rude to me, I think you can call, and ask Diane to make what you don't see, and she will make them for you, If I remember correctly.

OMG, I am so glad I waited before ordering! She called and said she'd rather do fresh flowers!! I would've spent a lot of money to buy enough 5" flowers...

I don't mind making them, but I just don't have the time and patience to make 30 orchids. Perhaps now I will begin making a few petals at a time just in case I get in this situation again, lol.
