Hello fellow CC'ers!

I live in Edmonton, Alberta Canada and have started looking for some flowers to put onto a wedding cake I have in July (customer gave me full run of the flowers since she apparently has no artistic talent - her words), and when I went to Michaels (place I get most of my cake supplies, other than Golda's Kitchen online) all I seen there were large flowers, and all with green stems and leaves.

I'm in need of white and champaign colored flowers with white stems and white leaves, or seperate white leaves to add - don't want any green. Has anyone ever come across anything like this? I'd LOVE to make the flowers, but the cost of her cake would sky-rocket and I'm already pushing her budget with the cake itself. Please see a picture of the cake she'd like me to do (with some modifications - one being not so many flowers, a little more spaced out):

Oh, kaat, thank you! I had absolutely no idea that there was such a place as J. Wilton...AND THEY'RE HERE IN EDMONTON!! icon_eek.gif
I'm sure I'll find my way now. I just need to see if my bride's budget will cover the gumpaste flowers. I'd hate to use silk or fabric - they look so rough compared to real or gumpaste (I don't use real flowers on my cakes, if you were wondering).[/u]
