ANeed some cake decorators/gardener s to help identify the flowers on this cake. I thought they were hibiscus but I haven't been able to find a cutter or mould that look quite like this.

Also, when you make a two tiered cake do you keep a cardboard cake disc under your top layer? Heard this on a tutorial and wanted some input. [ATTACHMENT=1303]image.jpg (359k. jpg file)[/ATTACHMENT]

I'm on my phone, which has issues, so can't see the pic.

 As for the second question, yes, you absolutely keep the cake board under the cake. You need to put dowels of some sort in the bottom tier of cake, and the board rests on those, keeping your cake from collapsing on itself.

That looks like a 5-petal flower cutter that has been embossed with a fondant tool.

AI own the silicone mold that makes this. You just use a 5 petal cutter with it. Lots of places sell this mold. Google search "five petal blossom mold" and you'll see it immediately.
