Carnation Tutorial

Here are some quick Carnations that I just made for a wedding cake topper. They were easier then I thought they would be!!

To start...hook a 22g wire and wrap floral tape several times. This gives the sugarpaste something to adhear to.
Roll out the sugarpaste thin and cut out a scalloped circle.

Use an exacto knife to cut around the edges as shown.

Place on a hard surface dusted with cornstarch. With your index finger, roll a toothpick back and forth around the scallops to frill them.

Turn over and brush center with glue up to the frills. Insert wire through the center and fold in half. Keep wire hidden. Brush glue below frills on the right side and fold past center. Turn around and repeat.

Pinch base to round the shape. Let dry.

Make a second cut and frill as before. turn over, brush with glue and slip wire through center. With index fingers and thumbs, pinch and gather the second ruffle around the first. Repeat for a third row. Let dry for about 15 to 30 minutes before adding each addition.

For a larger flower, increase size of cutter and/or add more rows of ruffles. For the ones used on this cake, I used 3 small, 3 medium and 2 large ruffles. If you wish to add color, hold upside down. With a flat brush, dust the edges with a darker color. I didn't do that with these because they matched the carnations that were in the table centerpieces.

Below is a close-up of the carnation topper.
