I have a wedding cake for Oct. and the bride found a cake with gardenia's all over it. I told her I'll be glad to learn how to do these flowers for her cake. Does anyone know how to do these. I haven't worked with gumpaste yet,( my next project) but I really want to learn and I have plenty of time to practice. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Found a couple of things
1) this is a DVD that you can buy for $19.99 (USD) http://www.internationalsugarart.com/cgi-bin/store/shop.cgi?ud=UlpRMUUwNEI4VSUlJSUlJTExMTQ0MzIzNDkA&storeid=1&sortby=categories&cols=1&categories=0004&&c=detail.htm&itemid=DVD3
2) This is more for the rose, but it has a pic of a gardenia in it http://www.sugarcraft.com/catalog/gumpaste/allinone.htm

Scott Clark Wooley has a book called Cakes By Design that shows how to make a lot of gum paste flowers. If you wanted to though, you could use artificial or buy them premade.
