Hi everyone, I'm hoping there is a flower expert on here...i have to try and replicate this centre piece for a cake...but i dont have much experience with flowers.
Can anyone suggest any simple ideas to achive this centre piece? And also what the different type of flowers that are on there? I only recognize rose :)
Thank you so much!
At least you have some time and the cake isn't due next week. I just bought the Wilton Gum Paste and Fondant book and it might help you learn some basics with the flowers. I can remember that it had the rose in it and you used the 5 petal flower cutter to do it. So there is one down! :) Also, usually when I want to learn something new I google a lot. There was a lady that did a step by step blog on how to make peonies that seems pretty simply written. It looked like a heck of a lot of work, but so worth it! Good luck!!
Here is the site for the peony: http://www.thecakerator.com/2010/09/gum-paste-peony-tutorial-part-2...
How about using real flowers on it? No harm in that but be sure they are all food safe!
