I started watching Sharon Z's awesome dvd on sugarpaste flowers. But now I'm kind of intimidated in thinking that I could finish baking and decorating and actually have time to make beautiful peonies by Sat. (When I've never used gumpaste before) So.... unless I do wind up having time to play, and they actually come out decent, what should I do? This is for the stacked gifts cake so it doesn't have to be loaded - just accents. Does Michaels have silk peonies that look believable? Or should I do buttercream? They'd be so small though... Or what about fresh? I have some in our yard that have not been sprayed at all... I'd have to check and see if they were blooming yet or not. Just would worry about bugs...
I looked at your profile a saw a lovely cake you made with pink flowers on it. Did you make those. They are very nice.
Oh thank you! They are just bc - tried to make them peony-like. I could do that again, but I'd rather have bigger flowers on this and he said not pink - I know I can't get a nice red, so I need a plan b.... or c..... (I could do white, but I'm afraid that with the cakes being white that it might be too much "white" - ???)
