I have a cake order for this and at first I thought it was a tulip and started looking for tulip tutorials but i cant find anything that looks similar to this. Please tell me what flower this is and how to make these please and thanks!
I am definitely not an expert, but those look more like small rosea without the center bud. It looks like they just cut lots of rose petals and overlayed them, but didn't do a full flower. I would suggest a tutorial like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzZY6NFyEkY, but just without the center and fewer outer petal layers to give it more of a "closed" bud appearance. Sorry I can't be of more help.
And that's "roses" not rosea. :)
ok thank you! as soon as i get home I will watch the utube video.. I appreciate your suggestion:)
Yes, I think it's just a fantasy flower, not supposed to look like anything botanically correct, and I think it is done with a 5 petal rose cutter and just kind of scrunched together?
ooo I will have to try that! I have the 5 petal flower at home as well, I hadnt thought of that..
