Need some beige-y colour stuff to use as filler flowers on a cake. Google's giving me silk flowers and pictures. Any help would be appreciated!

  • dried hydrangea blossoms
  •  

    • dried gypsophila (baby's breath)

     

    • dried german statice

     

    i wish there was some way to get a dandelion to hold still right before they seed out

     

    those things would be awesome with a little glitter

     

    little furry sparkling orbs

Besides dried flowers all I can think of is a dry calyx that cotton comes from or the base of the horse chestnut.

Invent some.  It's a cake not a botanical reference.

 

Make some generic small pulled flowers with 4 or 5 petals in plain paste, and then dust with both beige and pale green.  They will look "right" with medium brown simple dots at the centres.

AThose fluffies are called dandelion clocks! (The more you know, right? Lol)

I agree with inventing them! Just use a mold or cutter you have and play with dust. Fun fun fun!
