To make hydrangea flowers...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
is there a particular brand of cutter you would use? Would you recommend a particularly helpful tutorial? Should I expect to use wires or do they not always need them?

I am doing a wedding cake for some older friends and her flowers will be plum hydrangeas. I'm just a hobby cake decorator and am looking forward to learning a new technique - but I could really use some suggestions on where to start! I did try a search here but didn't come up with anything.

Thank you! icon_smile.gif

Edna at Design Me a Cake has a DVD on hydrangeas and other filler flowers. It's great! She also sells the cutter and veiner on her website.

I have the Wilton gumpaste set and I used the hydrangea cutters for this cake:

They were super easy and fun to do.

Make the flowers from creamy paste and use plum dust. They will look just like fall coloured real ones.

The wires help, otherwise the clusters don't look right.

Creamy paste? Is that different from just gum paste?

I think she means cream-colored gumpaste.
