My husband has asked me to do a "bouquet" of daffodils cake for his Mother's 70th birthday in 3 weeks, similar to many on this site in the galleries.
I have worked with gumpaste before (cala lilies on my sister's wedding cake), and found instructions on the web, and links on this site on how to make them quite easily. Not so with the elusive daffodil. Does anyone have a link to a tutoril for making gumpaste daffodils? I have been looking at the Wilton gumpaste set with the book - how do those daffodils turn out (size, realistic looking)? I also have seen a variety of cutters/plunger sets as well, but I'm not sure with which tools I will get the best results?
Thanks so much...I am looking forward to presenting my mother-in-law with an edible spring bouquet.
Well - I have tutorial for you (not mine). It is from Czech pages but all pictures, originally for marzipan.
Quite easy, quite realistic.
Hope it helps a little.
Well, the only problem is that it is all foreign.
wicked grinch -
Those photos are self-explicit. You should have no problem doing them. I can't wait to see your results!
I could translate for you - send me pm if you want.
I know that the photos are self explantory but I was wonderingabout a couple of things... I have the wilton book so no biggie.
