Frangipani tutorial

Many have asked me about the sugar flowers that I used on the lemon meringue cupcakes. I can tell that the flowers are called frangipani. A very “simple” flower to make as you use 5 petals in the same size. Frangipanis is often in the color combinations white/yellow or pink/yellow.

So while I was browsing for suppliers for the cutters I found this cool Frangipani tutorial online. It is with photos and is well explained. I hope that you will enjoy it and that it will help you make beautiful frangipani flowers for you cakes and cupcakes.

You can buy frangipani cutters here:
Earls Craft ‘N’ Cake
International Sugar Art Collection

Note: If you know other suppliers who have frangipani cutters please let me know and I will add them here. Thanks!

Happy Caking

    Thanks so much Louise; I can’t wait to start making these. Is it absolutely necessary to have the addition of tylose/cellagen to the fondant? I usually make MMF; do you know if it’s ok to add tylose to MMF? and I’m wondering if MMF fondant would be too soft. Thanks for any feedback you can give me.

    I cannot wait to try this. What is the “glue” they are referring to? Is store bought rolled fondant ok to use as is or do I need to add the ingredients listed?
