is there a particular brand of cutter you would use? Would you recommend a particularly helpful tutorial? Should I expect to use wires or do they not always need them?
I am doing a wedding cake for some older friends and her flowers will be plum hydrangeas. I'm just a hobby cake decorator and am looking forward to learning a new technique - but I could really use some suggestions on where to start! I did try a search here but didn't come up with anything.
Edna at Design Me a Cake has a DVD on hydrangeas and other filler flowers. It's great! She also sells the cutter and veiner on her website.
HI, i am sending you a link. Also, Wilton has a new kit. It is really nice. Use your 50% or 40% coupon and get it. You can,t loose. You will do great with it. good luck
I have the Wilton gumpaste set and I used the hydrangea cutters for this cake:
They were super easy and fun to do.
Jacqueline Butler makes GORGEOUS hydrangeas and she has generously put a very comprehensive 3-part tutorial on her blog
AWESOME!! You have helped me tremendously! I love that tutorial - exactly what I had been looking for. And I will definitely look into the wilton cutters.
Make the flowers from creamy paste and use plum dust. They will look just like fall coloured real ones.
The wires help, otherwise the clusters don't look right.
Creamy paste? Is that different from just gum paste?
I think she means cream-colored gumpaste.
That does make sense. I seriously need a week of sleep.
can you please sent it to me also? I need to make some hydrangeas for a wedding cake( periwinkle) Thank you.
My customer want the hydrangeas made out of butter cream, stick to the top cake and spread down to the bottom tears. what tip # can I used? thank you.
