I traced the poppy using tracing paper and painted them. Then cut round circles for poppies and rollef on edge to feather. Hope that helps x
Loren908283 asked:
Did you free hand it or did you transfer an image on it? If you did transfer it could you post the image I would love to try this out as my first hand painted. Beautifully done
lusciouscakes answered:
I basically copied this design off a magazine, but you could print my cake picture and do a transfer from that and then add the rest as you go along which is what I did
childhoodream asked:
What kind of cutters did u use to make such beautiful flowers? Love it but still scary to draw on my cakes.

Standard round cutter, probably 1.5 inch wide
