I am currently taking my 2nd Wilton cake decorating class and it is all about Fondant & Gum Paste. Fondant I have used before, but only on a few occasions and gum paste I had never used until the other day! Wow it is amazing the things you can make with this stuff! This pink flower above is called the "fantasy flower" and is made using heart shape cookie cutters...who whould have thought something so simple could turn into something so beautiful!
Here are some simple daisies. I just love these gum paste flowers. With the first day of Spring starting tomorrow, I can envision using these on cakes and cupcakes in a wide variety of fun and vibrant colors!
Here's a carnation. Such a delicate flower full of layers and ruffles. This flower is a little more tricky to make than the others, I was having trouble getting my edges to ruffle up to create the layering effect.
Have a great weekend!
