Gumpaste, cutters, modeling tools,, wires, floral tape, food colors, royal icing, colored dusting powder.
What was your inspiration?
I am a professional chef and I specialize in custom cakes. I wasn't given a lot of instruction about making gumpaste flowers in culinary school This has been wonderful way to learn more about the art since you can review the lessons as many times as you wish. Jacqueline Butler is a great teacher and made all instructions very clear and easy to follow.
What are you most proud of?
That I finished it pretty quickly once I got started.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Watch the lessons as many times as you need to fully understand. Also when Jacqueline says don't use too much tylose glue take her seriously. If it is too wet the flowers will never dry on the wires. I messed up on one leaf and ended up chucking it.
