Okay...here is my problem...the flowers are not keeping shape. They go flat !!
I keep putting them into the cups again to get shape as they are remaining flexible. Of course, this is happening at the same time I need to start decorating the cake for a graduation party client. Also ran into the problem of the sheets being different colors of the same color...how disappointing is that especially at the cost of these sheets. I am going to try dusting the bottom of the cups with corn starch but, that won't help the second tier of the 3 tiered flowers. I also have no choice but to half the cost of this order to my client.

Wow, this is the one of the best tools from wilton so far!
I had to make 50 cakes for a big wedding one for each table, and this came in handy, it took me a shorter time to ice the cakes and yet they came out very beautiful.
Too good to be true!
