Fast Big Statement Flower ready in 24 hours

OK when someone wants a fast cake this flower will make a statement without taking ages

You will need a parrot tulip cutter & viener or similar (these ones are from
Sugarpaste with extra tylose (about1tsp per 250g – you want it to dry quick halve it if you have a couple of days)
This is coloured with Chefmaster – Tropical Fushia
edible glue & brush
That werid tool you never thought you would use on the other end of you veining tool
bowl, foil & tissue
Bling button for center

Cutout petals you will need 8 in total I do 3 at time and put what I am not working on under plastic
Vein each one!

then using your tool on an ever so slight angle press and drag outwards on the edge of the petal to thin, this leaves the petal ruffley and each petal ends up slightly different,

you can use a small ball tool but it doesn’t quite give you the same effect

Line a large bowl with foil so you have a slight curve in foil, place each petal in bowl overlapping slightly gluing each time in only the bottom 2cm fan around then tuck the last petal under the first, using tissue lift each petal & slightly curve in differnt direction to animate flower

roll a small ball of sugarpaste flattenslightly brush with a small ammount of glue & attach to bling buttom, then brush underside with glue & press into the center of your flower
Allow to dry aprox 24 hours ( I did mine in 20)
Finished flower on Cake , flower measure aprox 6"across
