    I'm doing cupcakes for my AHR and am looking for a reliable place to get gum paste/icing flowers to put on them that won't cost me a small fortune. I've been scouring Google search results for days and have found one place that has what I want and also appears to be reputable (Cake Decorations & Bakery Supplies by Pfeil & Holing). Has anyone bought anything from them? If not, I'm very open to other suggestions PLEEEASE!

      I found a couple of sites that might help...

      Edible Sugar Flowers - cake decorations for cakes & candies
      Edible Flower Cake Topper
      Etsy :: CupcakeSocial :: Edible Icing Flowers for cake or cupcake decorations (12)

          We are also making cupcakes for the AHR. Instead of flowers, we are using seashell molds and making milk chocolate and white chocolate seashells. I think you can buy the molds at a craft store, but I haven't looked into it yet. Just another idea, in case the flowers dont work out. Good luck!

              I know that where I live the local food distributer sells actual edible flowers that you could use for your cupcakes. As for edible flowers, I'm a cake decorator and if there is a bakery supply store near you, you can find royal icing flowers already made that many times you can use for your cupcakes. Otherwise any of the other really beautiful flowers are more than likely gumpaste or fondant which you don't want to eat, but look very beautiful!

              Here's a link to my local cake supply that has edible flowers:
              Confectionery House :: Edible Decorations :: Royal Icing and Gumpaste Flowers

              PM me if you need more info!
