Hi there,

what type of flowers are these? 

Not sure if the ones on this cake are real or gum paste...?

What cutter do I need to make them?

Not a flower expert, can you tell? LOL...

Thanks for you help!

P.S. Just figured "drag and drop" seems to make it possible to insert pictures in a post...hope it works 8-0

It didn't work. Have you got a link you can post?

They look like peony roses.  Google gumpaste peony and have a look at all the different types you  can make.  You need to buy a set of peony cutters, although I do believe the really clever decorators can improvise and are clever enough to wing it.  Craftsy do a really good course on making peonies. / Nicholas lodge is the tutor.  Good luck!

Hiya, they are peonies, and as ammcats says you can make the cutters rather than spend on them. I made mine from a £5 set of metal heart cutters instead of buying the £25 proper set, and I have more to boot :) 

Ifyou Google diy cutters you'll find them.

That's a brilliant idea! Thank you so much. Just made scratches and will bring them to a guy who does aluminum work for me. Hopefully he'll make me some (and other flower cutters

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but they look like real peonies to me.  If that is the look you're going for maybe you should try fresh flowers.  They are beautiful.

They definitely look fresh, but there are some beautiful sugar ones around.
