I saw somewhere on the net where you can make a fondant (yes, fondant) tulip that is wrapped around a lrg. marshmallow. I can't find it again and was wondering if anyone on here might have a tutorial or know where I can find it. Any help would be appreciated.

TIA,
Sheila

I did a little searching and couldn't find anything close to what you're describing. IMHO if it were wrapped around a large marshmallow that would be ONE. BIG. TULIP!!

I believe it was Susan Carberry who demonstrated it. I get the newsletter from yummy - arts - and I think it was on there. Of coarse I got rid of the e-mail (at least I can't find it now). It was just a short demo. Didn't show the entire process.

Susan Carberry and the Y/A girls have YouTube videos, it may be on there.

I decided to take a chance and give a try. This is what I came up with for the tulips

No, I just went from memory. I really wish that I could see the demo again though. See how close I was to it.

They look great! Tulips are my favorite flower. Please, if you do find the instructional on this, how about posting it on this thread?

They are great! Such a good idea to use marshmellow in the middle! What are your stalks made out of? Just a number of lengths of wire taped together?

I found a preview of the Susan Carberry video http://store.yummyarts.com/Tulips_for_Mum_Mother_s_Day_Cake_p/seascake27.htm
I see she uses wooden skewers for her stalks, they look awesome.

O.K. Watched the video again. Thank you. I only used one mallow and I put it on the skewer the flat ends on the top and bottom, instead of 2 on their sides like she used. I would like to figure out how she made the leaves on skewers. I made mine on wire and then used floral tape to attach to the skewers on the flowers.

Susan's are definitely better, but I feel good about how they turned out. The customer was excited. Her husband taught food services at an area high school and he would bring in cake decorators to teach students the basics. He was here at the pickup of the cake and said he had never seen a cake as amazing as mine. (blush) Granted, I am from a small town where cakes like seen here on CC are not seen. Still makes me proud of my work.
