hi, you could do this flower freehanded, or use a 5 petal rose cutter. Then you would cut each petal seperate. Don,t roll too thin like you would if you were making the rose. These petals don,t look that thin,Pinch the end of the petal a little, you can see that this is done. Then , just make a ball for the center and flatten. You could actually make them ahead of time, or put together right on the cake. I like to make things ahead of time for time sake. hth any tear drop cutter will do also.

rose petal cutter, pinch ends. Place flattened disk in the middle.

Just a guess, but they look to be simply made using a circle cutter and then pinching one side together to make the pucker -

I'm going to guess a small circle cutter for the centers and a tear drop shaped cutter (like the ones used to cut individual rose petals) for the petals. If you pinch the narrow end of the petals, arrange them in a circle, allow them to dry a bit, then press the centers on them it would work. Alternatively, and given the size of them this might work better, you could cut and pinch the petals, cut the circles for the centers and arrange them right on the cake.
