Hello This may be a dumb question but when you make the dogwood flower, are they a flower by themselves or should they be attached to a branch?? I guess is I see them by themselves on cakes, but are they from a tree. I need all of the information that I can get. Thanks to all.

Not a dumb question at all. The dogwood is a tree, so a branch is appropriate.

If you search google images, you will see the natural color variations of the dogwood blooms. The pinks are beautiful. It will also give you a better idea of what a dogwood branch looks like. The dogwood is one of my favorite blooming trees...I have several and I love it when they are in bloom!

Here is a site with a picture of a cake with magnolias and dogwood. I actually copied this cake for a recent wedding. The bride wanted the flowers to have a slight pink color to them and to be scattered around the cake.
