Hi,
A bride wants me to put these flowers on the cake...Are these just ruffle flowers or is there a particular name /cutter for these?

TIA
LL

The orange ruffly one looks like a carnation.
the flatter ones look like a daisy.
the lighter color ruffly one might be a gardenia.

The flat 4 petaled flowers are dogwood. The larger look like peonies, though the centers are simpler. I think you can use a rose cutter or peony cutter and ruffle to get that effect.

Thank you for the replies...Yes, i was just looking at the larger flowers (orange fluffy ones) ... These are separate petals,right? Not just a large round or carnation cutter?

Sweetflowers gave you some good answers. I was just guessing and I was wrong, I didn't even notice that the smaller flowers only had 4 petals.

I would suggest asking and posting the pics on a Flower forum, they would be faster to give to accurate answers.

Peonies. There are four size petals to make the peony.

I would make the base of the orange flowers one large circle cut w/pinking shears lacking a specific cutter. Make each layer of petals (4?) a bit smaller, then make the center petals seperate OR use the 5 petal rose cutter, ruffling the edges and twisting them into the center of the other petals.
