Making a Gumpaste Peony Without a Peony Cutter

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi there cake friends,

 

I recently found myself in a pickle--a need for a big gumpaste peony, no peony cutter at my local (awesome) cake store, and no time to order online.  So I improvised and used scalloped heart cookie cutters instead.

It turned out so nicely that I wrote up a quick tutorial for my blog, Tikkido.  Thought you guys might be interested in it.

Also, you can use regular rose cutters, and cut out notches with the pointy end all around the edges before you frill them.
