Thread Starter 

I want these flowers for my grandmother's 80th birthday cake. . .I have been utterly unable

to find a tutorial on how to make them and the only ones I can find for sale are about

$30 each.


Can anyone help me find a tutorial on how to make these? are they not cabbage roses?

They look very similar to Queen of Denmark variety, the book Roses by Dunn Peck and Warren shows how to make them in great detail.

Check out Craftsy.com, Fondant Frills with Maggie Austin.  If you read the description, cabbage roses are included in that tutorial.

thank you all for your replies! Enga. . that is exactly what I was looking for. Very clear, and once I buy the cutters, I am quite certain I can make them, although from the looks of them they are VERY labor intensive, which is why I guess you can't really buy them. . and the few I saw were more than $30 each.

But, it may be my grandmother's last cake and I'll start practicing now for the cake to be made at the end of July.

 

Very enlightening! thank you!

 I will post some pics when I get the hang of it. . .. little bit intimidated by these, but I think I can do it.

I will admit, it piqued  my interest too,  I just don't know what I am going to use gum paste, or fondant which I already have plenty of.

 

I haven't made a sugar flower since school two years ago, I might as well use all those tools I invested in,lol.  I will post mine too, it might be awhile though.
