I am wondering if anyone will share their favorite book on making gum paste flowers? I am really interested in learning to make them. I have never done any. I have made elementary roses out of tootsie rolls and modelling chocolate.
I am only a hobbyist. I have a full-time job and two small toddlers, so taking a class anywhere is kind of out of the question. But I am pretty good at self-teaching and I don't mind spending hours and hours of evening time to make pretty cake elements.
Thanks for any and all suggestions.
Two good ones are Sugar Roses for Cakes and Sugar Orchids for Cakes, both by Alan Dunn/Tombi Peck/Tony Warren. I got both of them through Amazon.com, and they have really beautiful flowers and some filler flowers and leaves, too.
