I've always had a problem trying to form my flowers, and I wasn't going to spend a bunch of money on shallow cups at the craft store. I've been trying to find a way to form flowers without using a bowl that's too deep or too wide, but I couldn't think of how to do it. I ran across this tip on Facebook from the Artisan Cake Company.
How cool is that? It's a great way to do a bunch of flowers, or succulents, at one time, it's really cheap, and you can use things you already have. I'd probably use shorter cups just because I wouldn't want it to be too tall, but that's just me.
I'm so glad for innovative people like this!
