Does anyone know how to make these flowers?

also are these the same as the ones on the front cover of the book "Cakes for Romantic Occasions" by May Clee-Cadman

I love these flowers. It looks like three different size flower cutters, frilled and placed on top of each other.

I agree with KK and then a small ball of paste for the midde, easy but effective!

No, it isn't the same as the flowers on the front of May Clee Cadman's book, she uses 13 single rose petal cutters for each of those flowers. You could do a similar thing with the five petal cutter used here though - use different sizes and layer them up a suggested

They look just like the flowers on that book. But, again, just use the 5 petal cutter , make 3-4 rows of them , and the center. You won,t be able to tell the difference.hth

I prefer the May Clee-Cadman but couldn't really tell from the picture how to make them and I can't get my hands on the book in time.

May uses metal rose petal cutters - she cuts 13 altogether - 9 large and 4 small. She softens and frill the edges with a dog bone tool, on a foam pad. she then damps the base of each petal and starts to layer them up in a shallow flower former starting with the large petals, until they are all stuck togehter. She separates the petals with pieces of foam tp keep the frilly shape. Sticks them on the cakes in clusters icon_smile.gifthumbsdown.gif hth

I think this was definitely made with a 5 petal rose cutter... without overlapping the petals.... possibly using 3 different sizes but not sure.
