Can anyone suggest a video or instruction on how to make these flowers for a fiesta cake? I feel a little silly asking because it seems so simple to make, but are they ruffled and rolled from one piece of fondant/gumpaste, or is it done in layers? Also, would it be better to use fondant or gumpaste? and I'd also rather make them with a wire. And is there a better name for them besides fiesta flowers/ruffle flowers because I cant find much just googling those names. Thanks in advance!

Thank you! Those are some good tutorials!  I ended up just searching "Wicked Goodies" like in the picture and they actually have a book on how to make that cake and the flowers, and it says the flowers are carnations.

Just so you aware, the flowers on the cake are made of modeling chocolate and they are in the Wicked Goodies Book on how to make them.  You can make them out of gumpaste/fondant also.
