The style of putting one large flower on wedding cakes has really taken off...this is the way to get that effect.

The center flower is made of gumpaste, which is an edible sugar dough that dries to a hard finish. The gumpaste petals surrounding it are applied to the cake individually to give the effect of one large bloom.

Anyone can do this, it isn't hard...Here's a video that I made to show how to assemble the flower once you get the petals: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sI3riDoTnJ0&list=UUDru9n0gVtJlapF93R1npSw&index=1&feature=plcp

This kit is enough for a flower that covers the center of a three-tiered cake as pictured in the photo with the orange flower. I can do the flower in any color to match the theme of your wedding. If you need more of the petals convo me to determine exactly what you need for the size cake that you're going to be having.

IF YOU DON'T SPECIFY A COLOR I'LL SEND THE FLOWER IN WHITE!!!

Extra petals can be purchased using this listing. https://www.etsy.com/listing/107992637/extra-petals-for-the-large-gumpaste

The picture of the white cakes are examples of extra petals used to cover the entire three tiers. Extra petals would be $8 for each additional 10 petals. The orange flower uses about 40 petals, and the white flowers used about 60. It will also depend on what size and height the tiers of your cake are, so please feel free to email me to ask!

Please give me at least three weeks to make the flower and ship it safely to you! I might have some in stock but if you want a color other than white I may have to make it custom and that takes longer. Check out my information about shipping for more on shipping gumpaste items.

Frequently asked questions about ACakeToRemember

I accept custom orders if you contact me ahead of time to confirm that I can do them. I can't match colors exactly but can get them pretty close (except for purple, that's a tricky one in food colors.)
I don't do anything overnight delivery. I might be able to do priority express in the U.S. (one to two day delivery) for certain items, but it's expensive and I don't guarantee delivery times since that's out of my control. If you need something fast please contact me before placing the order, or I may have to cancel if I can't fill it within the time frame you need it.
Gumpaste will last for months if it's stored correctly, but I'd order flowers for weddings or gumpaste succulents about a month ahead of time. Wafer paper butterflies are good for a year or more if they're kept dry and out of sunlight to avoid fading.

All gumpaste should be opened CAREFULLY and stored in a dry area at room temperature. Don't refrigerate gumpaste, wafer paper or sugar sea glass, moisture is the enemy of sugar and starches, and can soften these items and ruin them.
Because sugar attracts moisture, and customs warehouses are apparently humid, I've had some gumpaste and fondant items ruined while they sat in customs. Because of this I don't ship certain flowers or pearls outside the US.
It depends. I need to have an actual item to use to make a mold, so I can't make one from a picture of a piece of lace, for example. But if you have something that you're willing to send to me I might be able to create a mold from it. I usually can't make a larger or smaller version of molds that I already have listed (again, I need an original to make a mold from).
If you have a picture, I can help you figure out what you need to buy. I do need to know the sizes of the cake tiers, since the amount of flowers or other decorations needed will depend on how big the cake is going to be.
I ship packages Monday through Saturday, since there's no mail on Sunday.

Edible butterflies, wafer paper, supplies, and silicone molds can usually be shipped the first business day after the order is placed.

Paper flowers can be shipped two to three days after the order is placed.

Fondant and gumpaste orders vary since I have to make them and they need time to dry before they're ready to be shipped safely. I can generally get them in the mail three to five days after ordering, but it might take longer for larger orders. Feel free to convo me with questions about specific items.
NO!!! I'm not a VAT registered business because I'm in the US. Any VAT or import fees that are imposed will be charged when you receive the package, not when you pay for the item. I do NOT include taxes in my prices, and the only tax I collect is the sales tax for the state of Virginia, which I do remit to the state tax department on a quarterly basis.
