White Chocolate Mum Cake- Cake Decorating- Video

I Saw this flower in a florist shop and just had to figure out a way to make it for a cake.
I went through 4 generations before I finally got what I wanted.

I found that the biggest struggle was to make the petals irregular. It's such a habit to make things even that I had to really  try to make them uneven. But it really needs to be. 

Mounting this flower on the side proved to be a bit more challenging. But all in all this is a very easy and quick flower after just a little practice.

This is the third generation of this flower, it was still to even at this point. I also added some yellow in the center.
