I have seen some beautiful gum paste gerber daisies and would like a few pointers as how to make them..... I have done very little with fondant/gumpaste flowers as most of my customers want to sink their teeth into my rich creamy frosting and not have to "pull" something off first.....(mostly men...gggg) I love the look of the gerbers and could really use some in a day or two. Do you use the same cutters as the daisies?
Last week I made a square wedding cake. In this post I wrote how I made them:
These flowers aren't very tasty, but they are eye-catching!
I do like it when all I make for my cake is tasty , so I made them once out of marzipan. They were delicious, but very, very britle....
For these, I used these gerbera/daisy plungercutters:
I allowed each separate flower to dry two days before assembling.
The other cutters won't work with gum paste, I'm afraid! The leafs are tho thin...
That's a great display Jozien!!
Thank you! Thank you! Yes, your cupcake daisies are really pretty. I have had quite a few requests for them and I'll send for the cutters.
