I'm looking for large paper flowers like in this photo to use on my bundt cake for my mother in law's birthday. Anyone know where I can get something like this? Also, does the paper flower get messed up with frosting being in the middle of the bundt cake like that?

Thanks
stacey

Take out the spaces and try that site. They're Mexican paper flowers, I think that's what you're looking for, even if you don't get them from the site I posted. She even says she made them for a wedding caterer, so I assume they're the ones people put on cakes...

HTH

We used to make flowers like that. I found some instructions for how to do it: http://madincrafts.blogspot.com/2009/11/mexican-paper-flowers.html

I would guess tissue paper would bleed into the icing, so maybe a wax paper circle between the tissue paper and the icing would work.

Wow. I learned to make those in elementary school in San Diego county back in 60s'. Never called them Mexican flowers though as we were making many different styles of tissue paper flowers. lol go figure.


These we just called carnations.

I was just referencing the website I linked to as far as what the site called them. I remember making them too...and I definitely remember that as soon as the glue touched them, the color from the paper started to run all over the place...not sure what material the bundt cake peeps are using.

Wow! A blast from the past! Graduating class of '79!
We just called them, "Tissue Paper Flowers"

Life was so much simpler then!

I made a bunch of these to decorate my first Christmas tree in the early 70's. I had purchased a rather sad looking tree with a wooden stand for $4.00 - which blew my mad money. (In those days beginning teachers were generally broke.) I had brightly colored tissue paper and pipe cleaners - teachers often own strange things. And I made a buch of flowers to put on the tree. My landlady felt sorry for me and my poor tree so she lent me a string of lights and another teacher lent me a silver garland after she heard me laughingly describe my attempts at Christmas cheer. I suppose it was pretty sad but I liked it. And all the colors were cheerful if not very Christmasy

Martha Stewart has templates and instructions for various ones. http://www.marthastewart.com/search/apachesolr_search/paper%20flowers

There's also videos on youtube for making several different ones, if you decide to make them yourself and you're a visual learner. They're interesting to watch even if you don't plan on making them. Just search tissue paper flowers or paper flowers.
