It sort of look like orange gumpaste briar roses or some sort of fantasy flowers with stamens.
I normally put gumpaste flowers on buttercream frosted cakes with no problems so far. I have even made a sheet cake and layed the gumpaste calla lilies on top, with no problem. I typically make my flowers on wooden skewers or tooth picks. I have made them on wires and just put the part in coffee stirers or straws (with RI in them) into the cake, still never had a problem. Matter of fact, once the cakes were complete they go into a really cold refrig until I take it to a...
I posted this information a little while ago when I was researching the very same thing, I hope this helps some one: This evening I was researching how to make a silicone texture mat or rolling pin and I came across this website: http://www.chicagomoldschool.com/ProductsforChefs.html Making a : http://www.chicagomoldschool.com/Articles/TexturedMat.pdf or Making a: http://www.sweetconnections.biz/CATALOGUE/CATALOGUE%20001-%20AcrylicRollingPin16.jpg I was wondering if anyone...

It sounds like your icing may be a bit soft from the butter. You may want to practice with shortening and powder sugar practice recipe. I'm sure there is a recipe listed here on CC.
