Hi everyone, its my first time making flowers and im wanting some advice on a water lilly. (My daughter is four and wanting a tinkerbell cake and i want to sit a large water lilly on my top tier with the pad.)
Would it be easier making my own templates and what would the best icing to use for it?
Many thanks for the help
Sounds like it will be a fun cake for your daughter. I don't know how involved you want to get for your flowers, but for the water lilies I made I used the directions in Scott Clark Woolley's book, "Cakes by Design". I used gum paste and they look very realistic. They are not particularly difficult, but are time consuming. Any lily shaped cutter can work or you can make cardstock templates.
I hope this helps. I find flower making quite addictive.
