I posted this in the Course 4 forum, but have noticed that it doesn't get much traffic or activity. So I'm trying here too, since I have a "product" related question.
I'm thinking of taking the new course 4 in August or September and I'm having trouble finding a cutter that is required. I already have the Gum Paste Flower Cutter Set and do not want to buy the Course 4 kit. I found most of the extra stuff that we need such as the sweet pea cutter and the impression mat sold individually.
But I can't seem to find the "Rose Petal Cutter" sold separately anywhere. I also am unsure what it is used for since I don't think that roses are taught in course 4. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to where I can get this cutter separately? Or is there a similar cutter that would be an acceptable alternative? I would rather not pay 50$ (in Canada) for the course 4 kit just for that cutter.
In a pinch (this is a pun that I'll explain in a moment), you can also use round aluminum cutters for the briar rose.
Here's an example:
All you have to do is "Pinch" one side of the circle a little bit and you have a fat, roundish, teardrop!
You could also tweak this set of cut-outs:

From my understanding, Wilton is suppose to start selling the Petal Cutter in August.
If you have a bunch of the Rose Cutters from class and the old 32 piece kit there are Tear Drop Cutters in there. This will give you a variety of sizes.
I hope this helps!
As it turns out, I do own the Gumpaste Flower kit that Bakes_Bunches refers to, and I think that is the easiest option for me.
