LOL...My husband just started getting grouchy with me for wasting money on real roses for the topper for my parents' anniversary cake. What makes it funny is, they're gumpaste and he couldn't tell. And he's really into the whole cake thing, so if he couldn't tell, they must be pretty good. icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

Here's a pic


I'm not wild about the yellow flowers but oh well. They're taking the cake to a Marriage Encounter party and the ME logo is red and yellow.

do you just use red gumpaste or do you use a petal dust after? thanks,

I used red gumpaste but it dried kind of a dull dark pink, so I painted it with red gel color mixed with vodka.
