How do I make them? I've looked online and I can really only find cutters that are like an inch wide. I need probably like a centimeter (maybe a tiny bit more).

 

Any suggestions? Thanks.

I purchased in eBay Arts & Crafts Flower Blossom Plunger Cutter Set that has a tiny flower less than a centimeter and the next size up is a centimeter.  The set has four, the other is a bit bigger than a centimeter and the other is 2 centimeters.

Thank you for the suggestions!!

 

Ok, so I need the fondant cutters for two different flowers actually. I found the first one (the one you posted MBalaska) on ebay, but this second one I can't find anywhere.

 

Here's the design:

I found some star flower cutters, but the smallest I could find was like 1.5-2cm I think. Would that actually work for this design? I know the regular little flowers need to be tiny, but how big do the other star-like ones look? Sorry, I'm not very good at gauging.

I ordered a mold that had teeny tiny flowers on it last year, I believe from Global Sugar Art. The flowers were very tiny, only about half a centimeter.

Apparently OP posted just before I did, it definitely appears those are plunger flowers as opposed to the molds like I used.

AThe ones that you are calling star-like are small 5 petal daisy-like flowers. I've definitely got regular cutters and plunger cutters that produce small flowers like these, but it's the middle of the night here still and my family will kill me if I go dig them out to look at the brand! I'll try to remember to post later if someone else can't help you out!

Now I can't even find the dang cutters, they're so tiny! Each one of these blossoms is about the size of a pinky nail. They are plungers, probably similar to if not the same ones referenced above by different people.

They're silver in color, have three different sizes, and a spring loaded plunger. Dang. Can't find them now.

AThey must be hanging out with mine, because I can't find mine now either! But AZcouture described them perfectly.

another reputable source for the tiny blossoms...

never seen the 5-petal cutters before (seen 6-petals or 8-petals)...how about a small calyx cutter, the shape is very similar?

The same thing crossed my mind. I could not find a single cutter or plunge cutter that had a 5 petal cut in that tiny size.................  it must be out there somewhere.

I have a set of three, blue metal, plunger cutters that have a 6 petal flower, a 5 petal flower and a heart, with the finished flowers measuring about 7mm.  They are almost as old as God, though, and probably just as hard to find.

I have used Jane Asher Cakes for a good selection of flower cutters...

 

http://www.janeasher.com/product-category/equipment-cutters-moulds/flower-making-equipment/flowers-flower-making-equipment/

 

They are pretty pricey (she is a bit of a celeb baker here in the UK so think you pay a premium for about everything!) but she does stock a good range of cutters.

 HTH

I lose these things all the time.  I just bought the Tala blossom plungers off Amazon.  I only need the tiny one which is 6mm - however, they come in a set of 4.  The other flower looks like it was from a stephanotis cutter.

! looked up calix cutter and this is what I found. Sorry the link is not working. look in GOOGLE IMAGES  

I suggest to also look into the clay department of your closest hobby center You might get lucky I seem to remember seing very small flower cutters.. But it is not a daisy cutter  because a daisy cutter has too many leaves. Good luck!

 

CIAO!!!
