The largest flower may be a little to big but it still makes a nice flower for decoration.

As they look as the ones that I have. The cutter that I use for the single flower on the photo is just a little over 1 1/2″ wide. The cut out flower is slightly bigger than the mold/veiner.

I was shopping on the GSA site and found this petunia cutter: http://www.globalsugarart.com/product.php?id=25664&name=Petunia-C%20by%20Framar%20Cutters
it says it is approximately 1-3/4 inches – is that the correct size if I wanted to have one flower only per cupcake? (exactly like your photo w/ some pearls). I tried the other links but the Tinkertech set was sold out (even individually) :(

They have 3 different sets available too, but one set doesn’t list all 3 sizes and they even have a different type of shape!

I already bought the mold you suggested.
Thanks for your help!

Do not store your flowers in the fridge as this will make them soft and sticky.

However even after keeping the base for my roses in the fridge for over 24 hours they are still wet and sticky and are even sliding down the skewer that I’ve got them on. what am I doing wrong?

Remember that you can use all the scraps. It’s such a sweet and simple flower to make :-)

I love these flowers and am hoping to attempt some for my wedding cakes next month. I was just wondering how much gumpaste I would need per flower? I’m wanting to make around 200 flowers but not sure if that would be very expensive or not!

Many Thanks
Hayley

I do not know the sizes of these petunia cutters here http://www.globalsugarart.com/product.php?id=19028&name=Petunia%20Set%20(SV-008)%20by%20Sunflower%20Sugar%20Art but if you read the review the person did use a 5 petal veiner with some of the cutters. I also found Petunia cutters here http://search.store.yahoo.net/yhst-21459497004217/cgi-bin/nsearch?query=petunia&searchsubmit=Go&vwcatalog=yhst-21459497004217&.autodone=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ahcakedesign.com%2Findex.html

Hope this helps :-)

Love all your creations, especially your color combination. I am also a person who loves lighter shades. Unfortunately I couldn’t find Petunia flower cutters 435, 573 & 599 and Five petal silicone veiner. I tried globalsugarart.com but didnt find the particular one u suggested. Can you recommend any sites where I can buy the flower cutters.
Thanks,
Pinky

I’ve just started doing cake topper’s. Every cake is different and new to me. I’m just a beginner and I almost take a panic attack every time I’ve to start a topper. If you have an email address i’ll send you a few pics of my work. Any questions you need answering I’d only be too happy to answer.

If you would like to paint, you can do it with dry food powders or mix the powders with drops of clear alcohol. The alcohol will evaporate quick so the “liquid” will not soften the paste. If your decorations have dried long (1 week or more) it will take some time before they go soft in the BC. I like to use plain sugar paste (rolled fondant) kneaded with small amounts of tylo powder. This will also help to make strong decorations but if going on BC they will take some of the moisture and get a little soft but still hold the shape. It’s close to be the same as florist paste because they both have a “gum agent” Use 300 gr. Of sugar paste to 1-2 tsp of tylo powder. Color the paste first, then add the tylo powder.
