If I Never Make Another Gum Paste Flower Again...

I will be happy. 
Really they are pretty and for the most part pretty simple to make.
But all the rolling, and shaping is tedious and somewhat mind numbing when working with such small flowers.

I made about 100 of them to go on top of cupcakes and the cake for my party.

I've also been making miles of fringed crepe streamers. 
That's a little more fun!

  1. Bless your heart.

    Had I spent that much time to make something so darling, I'd be smacking cupcakes out of people's hands 'You're not going to EAT that! I spent HOURS! Ingrates!"

  8. Hey I know exactly how you feel. A friend and I sugared a TON of violas for a garden stroll. AND on the day of the stroll, they had us in a gazebo by the water and it was windy. You guessed it. Those little violas went everywhere!
