Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of all the flowers I made, I though this one was not so elegant, but when I made it, it turned out sooo pretty!!! I love making mums! They look amazingly cute on cupcakes!! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This flower looks so good on everything but I had a hard time fanning the petals to make it look like a real flower vs a fondant ball. You have to make sure your petals are thin/thick enough and watch the pressure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the look of the flower, but the first time I made it i found that it didn't look the picture. With more practice, I have gotten better. I wouldn't say that this flower is hard, but I wouldn't say it is easy either. It looks great on a cake though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from be careful when adding extra layers bc if u get too much "glue" then the bottoms will rip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from when viewed GPmum looks difficult, however it is one of the most easiest flowers to make, using gerbara cutters the mum can become a full headed mum - wired or unwired.
