Hey all, I am currently making my very first wedding cake for my sister in law and wanted to do a 3 tier one with cascading flowers. Can someone Please tell me how to make the forget me not, apple blossom and small flowers that I make with the Wilton gumpaste kit and the garland ejector kit? I would like to make the mwith white gumpaste and then lightly tints parts of the flowers with pink. How do I do this?

I have worked with fondant before, just not making flowers.

If anyone can give me some advice I would love it.

Welcome wanna be!!! LOL cute name....

Gumpaste flowers are my specialty. I am happy to help you in whatever way i can. You can easily color the flowers with petals dust. I buy the "soft grip" brushes from Michael' those for dusting.

Feel free to PM me if you have specific questions.
