Hi guys,

First I will like to say I love this forum. YOu guys are so helpful to new people like me.

Well here is a picture of a cake a friend wants for her wedding. I am not sure what kind of flowers these are. Any help will be appreciated to get this look for her.

Thanks

They're basically fanticity(sp?) flowers.
Some are an attempt to make ribbon roses; other are simply made by taking a round and pinching the bottom until 'petals' form or a fan shape. Others appear to just be lengths of fondant that have been gathered into a 'flower'.

Hi there, agree with other poster they are fantasy flowers. Made to look almost like fabric flowers. Strips of flower paste then the edges are frilled with a cel stick or similar then rolled up (some loose some tight) and then pinched at the bottom. You can then frill them out, get them how you want them with the end of a sugar craft tool. if they are too long just cut the excess flower paste off at the base so they will attach neatly to the cake and stick with a little RI HTH - beautiful cake. hope it turns out well for you icon_smile.gif
