I want to buy a book that shows me how to make good fondant or gum paste flowers, any suggestions?
The wilton gumpaste flower set comes with a book that will show you how to's and easy to do. Its not too expensive either.
I have the Wilton Gumpaste flowers set which comes with an instructional booklet as well. It's a good starting point. I feel like some of the flowers are made to be more complicated than necessary such as the carnation. Then again, everyone has their own technique, and this is the Wilton Method. For about $13 (w/ coupon) it might be worth trying out. The booklet instructions are fairly easy to follow.
Once your comfortable with making the flowers you can search on ebay for some advanced books.
By the way, Welcome to CC
go to youtube and search for gumpaste flowers and you will see how
Madge is right, I have seen some awesome videos on youtube for fondant and gumpaste flowers. I havent tried my hand at gumpaste yet, but I intend to do so, soon.
One really good book .
Thanks everyone! I ended up purchasing the Wilton book. I love it!! Now only if I had more time to play...
