I have a customer who has requested African violets on her cake. I have the Wilton gumpaste kit and I'm wondering how I would make African Violets with that kit. Are they different than regular violets? TIA

Sorry, I don't know much about flowers at all. The gumpaste kit has instructions for how to make "Violets" I am just wondering if that would be the same as African Violets.

Unless you're at my house, then "African Violets" is interchangeable with "Dead Plant".
