Did you learn how to make the peony in the class or did you already know how to make it? Thanks, Sandy
PAKNZ answered:
Sandy - I followed instructions on Cake Journal site under gum paste peony - a very clear step by step tutorial. The Jacqueline Butler course did not cover making a peony but the other flowers are lovely.
