The theme of this party is Monet's Water Lilies collection of paintings. Two thoughts: Buttercream piped on like oil paints. Or fondant canvas with painted colors. Either way, I have never made a water lily, and likely too late to get a cutter. ANY ideas are appreciated!!! Thanks!!!

That's one heck of an undertaking.

Do they just want the picture as seen from a distance, or do they want the close-up impressionist view? If they want the impressionist version, I would buy some sponge stippling brushes (see stenciling section) and mix some airbrush colors, then dab the colors on. Fondant would work best. If buttercream, you'd have to use a crusting buttercream, and a gentle touch, but it can be done.

Water lilies can be done without a cutter.

heres a tutorial on the water lilies. don,t know what kind of cutters you have on hand, but you can always improvise and use similiar cutters for all flowers. even the green wilton package would have cutters to improvise with.hth
