Aloha
This driftwood cookie is made from honey dough. I made a suitable mold for this again. I embossed the hibiscus flowers with my "Petunia mold", matched the color to a hibiscus and added the unmistakable "flower stamp". My failed colored powder is ideal as pollen! So it has  its purpose ...
The leaves are all freely designed, just like the plumeria and calla blooms. Now a beach had to be found ... This is made of biscuit crumbs, "gummy bear water", a wooden board cookie and a fondant shell. The rest is decoration.

Flower types:
Hibiscus, plumeria, calla
Media:
Hibiscus and Calla are made from gumpaste
Plumeria is a mix of fondant and gumpaste
the monstera leaf is made of gumpaste
all other leaves are made of fondant

This time my inspiration was to create other flowers besides roses ... It was just as fun, but the roses remain my faforites.

Attached is a picture from the top view and a comparison of "Aloha flowers" with native flowers (pansies, winches, bluebells):

Your flowers look absolutely exquisite and so beautifully detailed, and the beach scene is such a creative way to display your arrangement. And, of course, those driftwood cookies underneath really take things up a level. The gumpaste and fondant are expertly done, however, it would also be wonderful to see additional, more distinct media included in your entries.

So beautiful Gabi @Icingsugarkeks!! I just love your beach theme with flowers on honey dough "driftwood" filled with gorgeous flowers like plumeria, calla lilies, hibiscus and petunias. So creative and simply gorgeous my dear cookie friend. You're always so ingenius with your creations. Love it!!! ❤️❤️❤️ Hugs...

Thanks a lot for your kind comment dear Christine! 😘❤️
I had already thought about how you can actually tell the difference between my homemade gumpaste and the finished fondant ?! The reference is therefore more than justified! The best way to tell is that the fondant looks pretty melted on all of the cookies while my gumpaste is holding. @Sweet Prodigy
