This is for (1) Electric Purple Cymbidium Orchid.
(The pictures shows 4 orchids)
They are made out of gum paste that is white and airbrushed with edible electric purple and petal dusted which a darker shade of purple to highlight the colors.
The column is made out of yellow gum paste.
And the throat/lip of the orchid is hand painted with edible regal purple. And then the whole flower is dusted with super pearl dust to give them a shine.
The measurements of the orchid varies.....
The petals are easily adjustable to open or close in to your liking. So, they can have an opening of less than 3 inches to approximately 5 inches wide, depending on how you adjust the petals.
Even though these are made out of an edible product (gum paste), they are for decorating purposes only due to the fact that there are wires in these flowers. But they will last forever if you like, depeding on how you store them. DO NOT put the flowers in the fridge, condensation may ruin them. The easiest way to care for them is to just put them in a rubber storage container lined with a paper towel on the bottom and place the flowers inside with the lid on the container and place them in a cool dry place, like the pantry or cupboard until ready to use. Long periods in the fridge may not be good, because of the condensation. I would say about 24 hours in the fridge is the max for them. They are very easily to place on the cake. Just stick them directly into the cake.
