Hi, My first request for Hydrangea flowers. I was just wanting some opinions on which brand or where u got yours and how you like them? I looked at GSA and saw the sunflower sugar art cutters and center mold is that the way to go? I just wish it wasn't so expensive! any thoughts or ways to cut corners?
Thanks so much!
I have the sunflower mold and it really is worth the money.I had a wedding cake in June and she wanted hydrangeas all around/omtop the cake so I bought the cutter and veiner...The were so easy to make and I airbrushed them in different hues..She was very pleased!!
Thanks so much I will go ahead with that, did you also get the center mold as well? or what did you do for the centers?
No..I didn't get the centre mold..I just piped 4 dots with BC for each flower.
Oh duh that is a great Idea! Thanks so much
Why buy extra molds when you don't have to
I use Petalsweets tutorial, and I bought the GSA set with two different sized cutters and a two piece silicone mold (SV-020). I make the centers by hand. Labor intensive, but they come out so pretty!
I use Petalsweets tutorial...
Her tutorial is amazing.
For the cutter and veiners look at "Scott Clark Woolley" web site, he has wonderful cutters, veiners and molds. His prices are reasonable and when you call to place an order they are so helpful and nice.
I am planning to buy the hydrengea cutter and veiner from his site as soon as I find an excuse!
I guess Petalsweets uses his cutters.
I do recommend Scott Clark Woolley's cutters and veiners for hydrangeas. I looked around for a while and decided on his and they work really well. I also got the hydrangea foliage leaf cutter and veiner at the same time. His instructions are each to follow, the price was cheap and he shipped them out immediately. I use them all of the time.
OK wish I saw this site when looking everywhere for a decent oak leaf cutter/veiner for a wedding cake I did. i needed realistic, not cartoony, which is what I ended up with. I ordered 3 different cutters and ended up spending about $50 on them and they didn't turn out 1/2 as well as I had hoped they would.
So, thanks for the site, it's bookmarked now!
