I assume people have seen the stunning cakes this lady makes. Oh my goodness....
Anyone know the best way to make BUTTERCREAM peonies???
Buttercream Peonies.... I have not mastered the gumpaste ones yet... not sure how to do the buttercream ones! My guess woudl be to use a curved rose tip maybe???? I have not done buttercream flowers in so long I am at a loss.
I was out in my gardens today thinking I need to take some pictures so I can remember what the flowers look like while in bloom so if I need to make them... I have pics to look at. My delpheniums are taller than I am this year! I am short but still 5' and they are about 6" above me! My clematis are going crazy right now. So pretty this time of year.
I have a few garden flower catalogs that I study for ideas on different flowers to make. And one can even invent a fantasy flower or a flower in an "impossible" color such as a blue rose.
For buttercream flowers, take a look at some of the older Wilton books published in the 70s - especially the 3-volume set by the Sullivans. One of those volumes has instructions for the state flower of every state in the US.
