I am planning a baby shower cake and the mother-to-be LOVES gerber daisies. I know many of you make beautiful ones from fondant...can someone tell me what tool/s I need and any tips? Thanks soo much.

either you can order the cutter here on Global http://www.globalsugarart.com/cat.php?cid=740

Or you can go to Cake and candy connection in Oklahoma City (NW Expressway/Rockwell) and buy it there. PME makes it.It's called a daisy plunger. But call them 1st and make sure the have it in stock, then ask them to hold it for you. Talk to Henry or Cherry.

Yesterday I made this gerbera cake

For the petals I used gerbera cutters with plunger and for the middle a little daisy cutter. The petals are veined with the holly veiner tool - I love it....

For the center I made a yellow ball, flatten a little, insert a hook and pressed the fondant in a metal sifter , then formed a little with my fingers. After drying I painted with thinned colour paste in green and brown....

Hope, that helps!

Gorgeous! Did you paint the Daisies after they dried or did you color the fondant?

I coloured the gumpaste in orange with Sugarflair paste....

In my opinion it's easier to color the paste then to paint the single petals...

How thick do you roll the gumpaste? Would using a fondant roller work?
