Hi, I used to post here once in a while but stopped when I took a hiatus from doing cakes (as mainly a hobby) so I can focus more on my family. Anyway, I'm starting to get back into it and hopefully, I'll be more active here. I am making a cake in 2 weeks for a friend and she wants these flowers on it. Does anybody know what flower this is? How would you make it?
No picture of the flower
That wasn't a complete link.
Let me try this again...
AIt's made up. Cut a circle that will serve as the base the size you want the flower to be. Then use a small circle cutter to make the petals. Beginning on the outside edge place your circles around, overlapping a little as petals would. Work your way inward staggering the petals. Hope this makes sense. I am going to attempt,to post a pic of a cake using this technique. Mine were done making them much more "cutsie" and less real looking but it is the same technique. When I saw the disc on the back of the flower in the [IMG ALT=""]http://www.cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3278647/width/350/height/700[/IMG] pic you posted it was the dead give away.
AAlso, the circles in your pic are much smaller than the ones I used.
The title under the pix says dahlia, but it is actually a fantasy interpretation of one.
