ACan anyone help me with figure out which flowers are on this cake? I see roses, hydrangeas, and stephanotis, but what is the flower on the center tier and the peach colored one on the top? [IMG]http://www.cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3321167/width/200/height/400[/IMG]

Possibly a double poppy. Some of those are quite full and round but they also can be kind of flat.

those are really cool, half of them look like poppies & half look like carnations.....I love them all.

It looks like a peony that is very open,something like what Colette Peters shows on her vintage cakes on her craftsy class.

I think its a fantasy flower, a marriage of all the above suggestions. It looks like its made with the 5 petal cutter in two sizes with either a homemade seedpods (peony type) or stamens. 

Only horticulturists and florists will ever look too closely at sugar flowers on a cake so don't worry about it if they are not botannically correct.
