I am taking an advanced cake decorating class at my local college. For my midterm I'm making a 3-tier cake with flowers. I'd like to do gumpaste but havent had alot of experience, so I was wondering if you could tell me the most beginner/easiest gumpaste flowers to start out with.
Thanks!

Probably daisies. Wilton sells a gumpaste flower kit that is pretty good. If you have that, then the daisy and apple blossom would be a good starting point.

Hi Britt-K, I think you can make anemones flowers, they are pretty,also they look very elegant on a 3-tier cake and you don't have to do a lot of them to decorate your cake. Attached is the tutorial from where I learn how to do them. Hope it helps.

Cala lilies are easy. There is a you-tube tutorial on them too.

Duff roses are easy... I don't know if that's the look you had in mind, but it's an option:
