I have made about 30 of these for a wedding cake. It took me a LONG time to figure them out. Getting a real cutter and veiner from Sugarcarft helped. I made them from a half and half mix of gum paste and fondant, then painted and powdered them with petal dust. All the instructions I have found on making them said to make the stamen on florists wire, but I found that making a rope of paste/fondant yellow at one end and green at the other, worked better for me. Thanks for looking!
