i'm trying to learn gumpaste flowers and such, but i really don't have time to go to a class. Can anyone recommend a good DVD?

Thanks!

Tonedna has a couple of specific flower DVDs available as well -- one for the stargazer lily and another for a poinsettia.

If roses are your game - you just HAVE to look at this website:
www.AuntGlendascakes.com
She has the best dvd/video for roses. I took a class from her when she came up to CT and bought her dvd - she also includes gumpaste bows that are awesome in her tutorial so you get 2 techniques that are the best. When you get to her home page - in the bottom right corner you'll see a section for her videos (just click on that). Really awesome! Good luck.

Hi,
I haven't seen the DVD yet myself but Jennifer Dontz does outstanding flowers and has a new DVD out called Fabulous Floral Arranging on Cakes.

Check out her website at : http://www.jenniferdontz.com/

I only have 2, and they are Nicholas Lodge's "Peony and Gardenia", and "French Style Decorating" which includes a small french tulip bouquet. He is EXTREMELY detailed, shows every shot(no editing), and explains exactly what size and color everything is that he's using. It's so detailed and smooth-going, that it took me a few times of viewing to watch the whole thing, as I kept falling asleep! But seriously, I can't recommend them enoughicon_smile.gif

Thank you bashini for mentioning my DVD.


mskavon, in my DVD I show how to make roses, carnations, blossoms, baby's breath, rose leaves, a striped bow, a ruffle, and how to make a display. It's $20. I also sell a veining tool on my site - www.lickthespoonproductions.com - that is used throughout the video.
