I was wondering if someone could help me find some buttercream tutorials on the following flowers:
- english rose - I'm not sure how to do that beautiful center bud to start my flower. something like this: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/77/2c/f0/772cf099839f8a98292cb687795b4068.jpg
- carnation - I'm looking for something very ruffled and elegant such as in this photo: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-us5lM3TBQ3U/VLom7PfyKtI/AAAAAAAAjLQ/ROO14DLf8V4/s1600/carnation%2B1.jpg
- anemone - I'd like something a bit layered if that makes sense? I'd like it to look very 3-D
- and finally, any tutorials to create these beautiful multi-petaled flowers: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/188517934379415897/
I've done a lot of googling and have found some videos and some blog tutorials on how to create some of the flowers, but some of them didn't give me the look I was hoping for and many of them were being classified as korean style buttercream flowers with no tutorials on them. I was hoping someone on the forum might be able to direct me on where to find a tutorial to do some of these beautiful forms? Thank you very much!
This one has a pretty good one on the David Austin rose and a few other flowers....
Thank you so much! Exactly what I was looking for! Do you have any idea as to what kind of tips they might be using?
Just a standard rose tip looks like...a 103 or 104 should work fine.
The tips used in that video are somewhat new on the market. There are several threads discussing them I understand they can be purchased on Amazon for a rather reasonable price.
You could use grass tip No 133 or 233 for some of the centres, they are easy to find and not expensive.
Here's one of mine for chrysanthemums:
I also did one like the English Rose in this video, around the 8 minute mark:
