"These are breathtakingly gorgeous. Such beautiful, soft colors and the detail along with slightly varying shapes make these look so true to life."--Customer feedback
They look beautiful on cakes in clusters, or scattered as individual blossoms. Each flower is slightly different so that they look natural and realistic. Real hydrangeas are toxic and also wilt quickly, so gumpaste is the better option to use on cakes.
Gumpaste is an edible sugar dough that can be molded into shapes, then dries hard. Flowers made with gumpaste are technically edible but don't taste like much...They're food safe, so you can use them knowing that they won't be a hazard on your cakes if someone does eat one.
I make these using either a colored gumpaste or in white, then I enhance the colors and add different tones to them by brushing them with an edible food coloring or by airbrushing them with food coloring. Real hydrangeas aren't all one color, so by adding the extra tones I give them a depth that flowers made with just one color don't have.
The flowers can be made in any color that you need. Convo me to ask about availability or to place a custom order, and I'll create a listing for you.
These are unwired so that they're totally food-safe. For wired flowers use this listing to order: https://www.etsy.com/listing/112033211/wired-gumpaste-hydrangea-bunch-of-6-for
This is a listing for 25 flowers. I can make more for you using a custom order if you need a larger quantity.
These flowers are about 1 1/4" across the larger petals. Variations in size can be expected because each flower is made individually.

Since gumpaste is fragile, some breakage can occur in transit. Please see my policy page to read about this.
***Flowers are made to order if I don't have them in stock, so allow at least two to three weeks for ordering. If I need to make them they'll have to have time to dry before they're safe to ship them to you.***
