What advice would you give someone starting this project? I decided to take it a step further and rolled the gumpaste to a number 7 on the pasta roller for extra thin-ness. It made the petals more fragile and I ended up breaking two of them. So for that I would say roll out as recommended on the video. Thankfully Chef Lodge showed how to make the "glue" to repair broken pieces and I was able to fix them without too much trouble. Can you find the broken places? Also, I didn't have any 28 guage wire and went with 26. It made a difference in my leaves as I had to roll them a little thicker to get the wire in. Next time , I'll definitely get the 28.
