Passion flower

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Can anyone tell me how to make a Passion flower out of buttercream frosting? I'm VERY new at decorating, and would like to make a few to put on my daughter's birthday cake. Making coconut chiffon with passion fruit filling and passion fruit buttercream frosting. Otherwise, I'm going to have to go to the florist in hopes of buying a few or put live orchids on top of the cake.
Please private message me, if possible, as I'm new on here also.
THANK YOU!

One link shows the passion flower made from gumpaste and the other from paper. You could combine the two methods that is the way the pieces are and then dry in an apple tray or on a piece of foil placed on the top of a glass, slightly pushed in to give a shallow bowl like curve.HTH.

Another question while I'm at it! Can you, naïf so how do you, dry flowers/decorations made out of buttercream frosting?

Buttercream decorations will not dry but you can make them and freeze them and place on the cake on the day of the occasion, decorations made from royal icing dry hard.
