You will need gumpaste, wires, cutters, veiners, dusts, formers, floral tape (contains latex so watch out) and maybe a mold for the center.

Go do jenniferdontz.com, email her and ask her for directions because she also sells the supplies.

Try looking it up on YouTube.
I'm new to cake decorating and am learning so so much by watching the video tutorials that people have posted there.
Or you could email [email protected] I've watched lots of her videos on YouTube and she's really helpful and gives very clear instructions.
Good luck
