Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Gum paste

What are you most proud of? Hand rolling the gum paste thin enough to look real.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Invest in a pasta roller or attachment for your mixer. If using commercial gum paste don't bother with Wilton - too dry. Make your own if you can. You don't have to have all the fancy supplies, but the tap pad and veiner help. I have roses so I clipped several leaves, washed them in soap and water, and used them to vein so I could match real life. Taping wires takes practice. Have fun

Lovely roses. Can you please tell me what colouring you used it's a lovely shade!

I used Wilton royal purple gel. If you use it and are making roses for a cake a week or more away don't store fondant and roses in a clear container. Left exposed to light they fade to gray. Mr. Lodge said to make the roses, steam, & store. I wrapped roses in black tissue paper and put them in an ornament box. Nicolas lodge has a no fade purple & pink I love.
