What Flowers are These? Tutorial Needed!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Can anyone tell me what kind of flowers are on these cakes? A tutorial would be even better! I have a customer who likes these, and they look simple enough, but I'm not sure if I even have the right tools!  My gumpaste flower experience is limited to what I learned at my Wilton classes :)

 

Thank you!

Don't know what kind of flowers they are but I found this on the pics today in cake central. Simple Sugar Flower Tutorial.  Maybe that will help.

They look like Plumeria flowers to me.  I'm sure you can find a tutorial on google.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

You've probably not been to Hawaii and while you were admiring some flowers asked someone what they were and they told you both names. icon_smile.gif

 Suprisingly, the thinner the petals, the easier it is to roll them.

The nearest I've ever been (or am ever likely to get) to Hawaii is snuggling up on the sofa on a Sunday night to watch Hawaii 5-0 icon_wink.gif

I could be wrong - but they look similar to Pulled Flowers (no cutters used)  a technique that I learnt while attending PME Sugar Flowers classes.

The top flowers are definitely frangipanis. Not sure what the second ones are but look like they would be reasonably easy to make.  Look at your cutters and see if you have anything similar. Stick together to form a deep throat.

Plumeria/frangipani for sure.

Thanks everyone!!  I did some scouring yesterday and did come across Plumeria, but I still wasn't sure. I have a small leaf cutter from my Wilton class, but I think I'll get a larger one to make a larger flower.


You guys are the best!
