I love these cupcakes by Fair Cake!

Does anybody know which cutters were used for the top center cupcake and the bottom right cupcake? I have a bunch of flower cutters, but nothing that small. Can you help a girl out? icon_biggrin.gif

My guess is that they were piped on with a small round tip.

Bottom right looks similar to the Wilton lilly of the valley cutter they have in their flower set. I haven't seen the 4 petal one.

I agree with all4cake..looks like these were done by hand and not cutters..but not 100% sure

I sent a request for information and a link to this thread. Maybe they'll enter to answer this one.

I'm not sure but the bottom right flowers look the right size for my smallest PME - Flower Blossom Plunger Cutters, they come in a set of 4.

I'm not familiar with the 4 petal cutters but will have a look!

Ok, the four petal flower could be a daphne cutter... http://www.squires-shop.com/ibf/index.php?p=product&id=1233&parent=171

or a fuschia (but can't find the dimensions to check)... http://www.squires-shop.com/ibf/index.php?p=product&id=4089&parent=171

Hope it helps!

They also have a facebook page and it shows you the blossom cutters on there... http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150304307955324&set=pu.108113885323&type=1&theater (if link doesn't work I'll post direct link to page but it's photo #374/803)

R4ORT is right. The flower of the bottom right line is the smallest of the PME-Flower Blossom Plunger Cutters. I'm not sure if they come in a set of 3 or 4, but I used that one in the wedding shower cupcakes of my photos (page 2 of my photos). HTH

Because the flowers on the cupcakes (lower right) look smaller than those made with the smallest plunger cutter in that set (to me, they look smaller than those on your cuppies, momsgoodies) and the 'petals' look more rounded (almost ball like) in the OP's link than those that are achieved with the plunger cutter is why I still say they're piped. Not saying I'm right, just sayin' that that's how I come to my guess on those two.

Managed to get the course details for those cupcakes (Wedding Cupcake and Roses).

http://www.faircake.co.uk/wedding_cupcakes_class.html

The course syllabus refers to using cutters to make the flowers. Having used the set of 4 PME blossom cutters for a while, I think that the OP's photo shows the flowers being made from a lot thicker paste than momsgoodies and it really does make them look different.

I'm planning on baking some cupcakes tomorrow, so I can try to recreate the bottom right photo using my smallest cutter if it helps.

Thanks for all your replies, I really appreciate the help! Since I'm fairly new to cake decorating, I didn't even know where to begin to look, but I knew someone here could point me in the right direction!

Wow, thanks for posting this info... and you are so sweet to offer to try and recreate the cupcake. I think I have enough to go on for now, but if you do try it, let me know! thumbs_up.gif
