AI've been asked to make this cake for a friends wedding. Does anyone know what the flower is called and if there is an example on how to make it online? Also, does anyone know where I can get a rabbit mould similar to this? X[IMG][/IMG]

Yep, I believe it's a peony. I think they've used a frilled peony cutter, like these ones

There's heaps of tutorials online for making peonies. 


And the rabbit looks to me like it may have been hand moulded.

Please help. I've got to make this cake but need some advice on 'naked' cakes and also what pillars, plates, etc that I need to use? X

AYou can use sps, the are plates and pillars that lock into place. You can leave space between tier for your flowers or use styrafoam seperators.

What do you need help with exactly? The best advice is to make sure everything is perfectly level, also I'd measure or weigh the amount of BC between each layer so they are all consistent.

Very neat! I have only started practicing with fondant. How long , total hour did it take you to do flower?

AThanks so much. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I spaced it out over two evenings but it was really fun to make. X

Did you do last petals on wires? Last 3 rows of petals on my flower were on wires. It took me 3 hours (spaced out in 3 days) to do my flower.
