what type of cutter/viener set do you all use to make Cherry blossoms?? Whats most commonly used?? I have a cake at the end of the month and I think that's the flower they want on it.

Here's an example of what they want the cake to look like and i can't figure out how to make the flowers...I can guess but you all are more educated for that guess than I.

Having a look at the cake (im not an expert by any means) maybe a 5 petal cutter and frill the edges? There is possibly a cutter I'm not sure someone else probably knows better but I'd have a go with that. hanX

Thanks...that's what I was planning on using, just wondering if there were any special instructions on cherry blossoms.

Not really any special instructions.
If you have a very fine veiner you could press it on the petals but they will look good w/o too.
This flower is not very ruffley - just a slight pass on the petal edge to give them life & thin is all you need.

i've seen that cutter in sugarart (link here on cc) and it's in the gumpaste/flowers section-it's called dogwood (i think, i'm pretty sure) but most cherry blossoms i've seen use those fondant 5petal (those nesting ones, i use the smallest-or the ejector kind would work too... oh i want one of those!) i use my small ball tool and the thick pink sponge and first thin out the petals, just press lightly and then cup the middle around the ball to give it a blossom look (?) hope that help-there's a pic in my photos, the blue cake icon_smile.gif

I made some cherry blossoms the Toba Garrett way. Mine is in my pics with the pink cherry blossoms and the painted fondant. I don't remember using a cutter, just the mexican hat method and pulling/thinning on the sponge. I wish I had used the cutter. Didn't think about it.

This Website should help with what your looking for. Scott Clark Woolley's Cutters and veiners are listed and easy to find what you need.

I think I'll just use the cutters from my rose kit...and modify them a little. I am thinking thats the best thing to do...that way I don't have to buy something else for this cake...just use what I have. They want a white cake with white cherry blossoms with blood red petal dust on the edges and I am thinking of doing red centers in the flowers too...they don't want the whole flower red like this pic. At least that's what they said at our tasting. I cannot get the bride to answer my e-mails....oh well maybe if she doesn't pay me by this Saturday I won't have to deal with it at all!!
