Just got done watching Cake Boss tonight --- LOVE the large flower on the large white cake on Cake Boss tonight (unfortunately the losing cake) - anyone have any tips on how this flower was made, they only showed a little bit of how it was made and it looked like some kind of layering of the petals - and it was just beautiful!!   Anyone has any tips I would appreciate it.  :)  Thanks!!

I think that Kim was talking about the flower on the Next Great Baker-the lastest episode. I think the guy's name was Chad-he got the boot last night. Not sure that it was a peony-I am no floral expert- that was just the closest thing I could say it resembled. But I am fairly certain he used a dogwood cutter. There was one shot that showed him cutting out various sized petals with heart shaped tops.

Hello.....so sorry, I did say the wrong show, it was not Cake Boss, it was The Next Great Baker and it was Chad making the flower.    Now that you mention a dogwood cutter, that is what it looked like - and the way he layered the flower on the cake and then put a center in that was full of stamens - it was just beautiful!   It looked like a fabric flower on the cake....very nice!

AI'd say it's a fantasy flower, with dogwood petals or heart shaped petals
