Cakesonly, the gumpaste needs to be thin enough to read through icon_biggrin.gif

Sisita, I used CK gumpaste mix. It was only $2 or so. I just followed the instructions and just added 2 TBSP of Tylose. Then I when I'm about ready to use the gumpaste, I take a little and I knead fixodent in it.

Momkiksbutt, I heard you can use the fixodent as a tylose replacement. I heard fixodent is the same thing, but it has that mint smell. I haven't bought the wilton one. I just use the CK gumpaste. I think I can find some around here in Hawaii, but I haven't gone to Excutive Chef yet to look.

Thanks to everyone for their compliments!

Thank you to everyone for your compliments.

Definitely a HUGE thank you to superstar! You really helped me with making the gumpaste. It's been raining and humid and the gumpaste is hard like rock! The tips on using both tylose and fixodent is the best! Much mahalo!

I can't believe that was your first try! It looks so real! You did such a great job. I can't wait to see what you do next! How long did it take you to make it? I hope I can get that good some day!

Actually it takes about 15-20 minutes to make one rose. I could have made at least 2 or 3 of them during that time, but I just wanted to try one.

I used a pasta machine to roll out the dough, so that was pretty quick. Then I used the cutters, then started to make them. The last 2 layers takes awhile, because you want them to harded just a little to help them hold their shape. So for that, it took about 10 minutes, but it was a pretty quick to make it. It's the drying time that's probably the longest part.

Leilani,
Your rose is beautiful and real looking! We have a hot and humid climate here in P.Rico as well. I'll also appreciate it if you decide to post your gumpaste recipe that SEAQUEEN asked as well.
Lucky you to own those Rosemary Watson's videos.

It took me so much time to write that I couldn't see you had already written that you use CKGumpaste and the tylose you add to it.Thanks anyway.
Forgot to add that you have a lovely name.

Erlyns_Treats thank you very much for the compliment.

The former is just spoons and the foil pans. You just cut the foil pans to a shape of a petal.

leilani808, thank you. I used the webshots you posted to get the general idea but I used spoons and just folded the tops over gently if that makes sense.
I started with white gumpaste and then used 2 different types and colours of luster dust. 1st dusted with cc luster mauve quartz then dusted with carolines pink pearl. Thank you all for your comments.
