Just commented on this gorgeous cake on facebook. Haven't tried ranunculus yet. Yours are stunning. Any tips or tutorials you can point me in the direction of??

Hi, I just looked long and hard at Jaqueline's ones, and tried to re-create. Used the back of some piping nozzles and my standradr all-purpose veiner. I still have to work on them - this is a first try, and I have a few ideas for next time. I did look up this tutorial, but have to say, didn't like her end result that much..: http://www.isugarcoatit.com/2012/08/ranunculus-tutorial.html

Thanks! White chocolate ganache, just marked the smooth surface with a butter knife whilst turning the turn table at a constant slow speed. Just give it as go, there are so many ways you can do it
