This cake is my inspiration for my mother's 50th birthday cake in June. (The top two layers anyway...). I have never done gum paste flowers before. I am familiar with a lot of the techniques but I was wondering what cutters and tools I will need to buy for the flowers on this cake.
Will the regular rose cutter be ok or is this an extra large size?
Do I need anything (like a veiner) for texture on the flower petals?
To get the edges crinkly, will I need a ball tool and some foam? Not really sure how they got the rose edges so nice and curled.
Also, the small white flowers look like hydrangeas to me and I love how simple they look. However, since I don't have any cutters currently, it would be really expensive for my to buy the entire hydrangea set of cutters as well as the rose cutters. Any suggestions for a different flower I could use that is just one cutter I could buy instead of the whole hydrangea set?
