OK, I can't get the picture to upload, anybody know what I am doing wrong?

It's the hexagon cake here:

According to the description on the MS website, directed to by clicking on the link under the image of that cake, states the same techniques a dressmaker uses to make flowers inspired these flowers. I'm going to say there was plent of folding (the pointed-tip flower in the front looks like it may have used the gift bow (not loopy bow) technique), ruffling (many of the flowers, like the one on the lower right side), pinching (second from the top tier, larger flower, front right side...looks like the same technique used to make the dahlia), rolling (centers on some of the flowers have a rolled ribbon look to them).

That cake looks like it was a lot of fun to make!

follow the links for the various flowers. I don't suppose all the steps are taken (as in the multi folds of the origami inspired flower...that one is too cute not to include!)

the link to the tutorial is no longer valid but these are the bows to which I referred earlier

Thank you so much! You are the best! That first website has 31 days of different flowers, there are so many to choose from, I can't thank you enough for finding this for me. I have been searching and trying to keep up with orders, and didn't think I would get it done.

I owe you a bitg one!

Thanks
