Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Gumpaste, gumpaste tools, wire, petal dust, floral tape, food color, flower cutters. What are you most proud of? I am very proud that the flowers came out so well. I received lots of compliments at the wedding. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Practice, practice, practice!! You need to practice a lot to get as good as you can and to get comfortable with the technique of making gumpaste flowers. It is not something that you can learn over night. It takes time....be patient.
