I agree with the hot soup analogy too. I also think it is almost like pouting and your lower lip should be resting on the lip plate. Try just playing the headpiece and rotating it nearer to your lips and away from them and see what sort of pitch and quality of sound you get. Also the concept of 'edge tone' is very different from using a reed like on the clarinet. Try blowing over bottles with different apertures and pen tops etc.......... because you get a feel for different types of resistance which you will encounter with different fingerings/registers on the flute. I personally think the clarinet is much harder to blow than the flute but I play wide bore clarinets and use a lot of diaphragmatic breathing. My main instrument is clarinet but I learned the flute first.
