Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was easy to make according to the instructions on given here on Wilton.com. Luckily I had blossom cutters similar to the nesting ones recommended here so that made it a lot easier. As I were using the peonies on the tops of the cake, I didn't use the hot glue to hold the petals. I just used fondant-water mixture to hold the petals together. Using the fondant-water mixture allowed the guests to nibble on the peonies if they chose to.
