I am thinking of making a flower box as a b-day cake but need some gumpaste flowers to hang over the edges. Does anyone know how to make a petunia type flower or something else drappy looking. I have the gumpaste book from wiltons class but nothing is really droopy.
thanks in advance

How about some ivy? I know it's not a flower! Or a stephanotis modified to look like bacopa?

I'm going to try to make some for a cake this weekend, and I think I'm going to start with my five petal cutter and shape from there...

Though if anyone has a better idea, I'd really like to hear about how to make petunias!
