I cant find a video, but in my Wilton gumpaste flower book there are directions. It comes with the gumpaste flower kit, maybe they might have the separate directions on their website.

I agree that the dianasdecoratingdiary tutorial is superb thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif . I've used the Wilton fondant/gumpaste flower instructions and didn't like the results at all thumbsdown.gif . The same goes for their carnation thumbsdown.gif and rose thumbsdown.gif instructions, by the way. I actually bought a pot of tulips to copy flowers for two cakes from, but they would've been a lot prettier if I'd seen the tutorial before I made them. I have a couple of "thank-you" cakes coming up this week and I think I'll decorate them with tulips following this tutorial icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif .

I thought the tutorial was very easy to follow, some are confusing. thumbs_up.gif i wonder is she has any more?

DianeM Posted 19 Apr 2009 , 10:07pm

Glad you found the instructions easy to follow. I did the tutorial, and the spoons make all the difference I think.

What other flowers are you interested in?

ninatat Posted 19 Apr 2009 , 11:09pm

just about any i'd like to know how to do the carnation, a daffodil would be cool. can you help me with my butter cream, i can do the leaf but i can't get the tip at the end, when i pull it away the tip doesn't come out pointed but the sides of the end do. can't figure out what i'm doing wrong. Thanks so much. Diane

RockysMommy - thank you so much for the tulip tutorial. I am going to try making some of these tomorrow! Can't wait!!!

I have the tulip petal cutters but not the tulip veiner. What do you suggest I use (hoping I have something in my tools).

I live in Washington and tulips are in bloom just everywhere, they are soooo beautiful!!!

Thanks again, Carol icon_biggrin.gif

You are very welcome Carol...I love tulips...would love to see them...have some in bloom here in Georgia.

...hmmmm, not really sure what to tell you to use in place of the tulip veiner...I have used actual leaves before...sorry I couldn't be more help...can't wait to see the pics.
