After you cut out the flowers you will need to take a knife and cut into each petal. Here you will see a circle in the center of the flower, that is so you don't cut down to far in the center.
After you cut each petal you will need to take a paper clip and bend it at the top to make the Daisy impressions. After you have put an impression on each petal, place it in an egg container or something that will give the flower some shape. You can also use foil if you don't have any egg cartons. Use 50/50 gum paste and fondant. Or you can use Tylose and water mix. After you have made the flowers take some glue and put some in the center of the 2 3/4 one. Take the 2 1/4 flower and place the smaller one on top of the bigger one.
You will need to cut out 10 or more small Daisy's at 1 inch. Shown in the picture below you will need to cut them in half and then cut each little petal.
Let the flower set for a little bit to harden. I took my Gerbera Daisy and airbrushed it Pink with a little luster dust. Hubby bought me an airbrush gun for my birthday back in July and this is the first time I got to use it.
After you have let it dry some, take a small piece of gum paste and roll it in a ball. Take the ball and put it in the center of the flower and push it down in the center a little. Use a small pair of scissors or something sharp. I used my exacto knife and just started cutting into the center of the flower.

Herer are the Chocolate Heart Taffy's I made for my Granddaughter's 4th birthday party this Sunday. Since Katie likes the color purple, I thought why not use it to write her name and outline the heart. Nothing fancy here, just something special for her on her special day!!
