Hi everyone. This cake was for a bridal shower last Saturday. It's a fall themed wedding. I made the flowers from starburst candy. I unwrapped all those little things (pain in the ****) then melted them in the microwave to a play doh consistancy, so I could work with it and then rolled it out like pie dough and cut 30 each (90 total) with a set of fondant cutters. I glued them with a dab of buttercream and put them in an egg carton to get the shape, I did use a flower foam square to curve them first. Everyone really liked them. Just wanted to share them with you all.

Great job on the cake and the flowers! How long did it take to dry the candy flowers?

Hi, thanks for the great comments. I really didn't let them dry. They were mostly dry already, I rolled them out with corn starch. I put them in egg cartons to keep them formed and they did draw a little moisture, but after we put them on the cake (the night before) they were fine (dry) the next day.
