Hi guys, I wanted to post my instructions for making gum paste peonies. I used the following cutters: Peony Cutter set: (FV-04 by Sunflower Sugar Art
I tried to add an attachment here but was not successful, so I uploaded them to my flicker site. They are scans from my sketchbook. Click on the small images to get to the bigger version.
These are definitely not detailed instructions but I hope this helps someone out!

Thank you for sharing, your flowers are amazing.
Thank you for sharing. Your flowers are beautiful! Peonies are a flower I haven't attempted yet.
Thank you, so much, this is awesome! You're flowers are just gorgeous!
Thanks so much! I've struggled with peonies, and am always looking for a method that will work for me. I'll give yours a try!
Awesome!!!! Thanks so much for posting the instructions!
So wonderful of you to post this. Peonies are one of my all time favorite and romantic flowers. I can't wait to try with your instructions.
Thank you very much.
Thanks for posting! I've been looking for a peony method that works for me.
I do have a couple of questions because I have struggled trying to make peonies in the past.
1) Drying time!!! How long do you have to allow for drying in-between each step? How long does the wire have to dry in the base? How long do the petals dry? Do you want the petals completely dry when adhering them to the base? How long does the completed flower have to dry before using?
2) I've tried a method where a few of the layers of petals were wired, but it doesn't appear that you use wires at all. Any tricky problems to look out for when adhering the petals?
Thanks so much!
Thank you so much! Now if mine turn out half as pretty as yours I'll be happy.
Thank you so much for sharing!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your flowers are gorgeous. . . and the instructions couldn't have been more timely. I actually starting making a peony today for the first time. I really like your end results better than the method I'm using, and your instructions require fewer wired petals, so I think I'll start again using your method. Thanks so much for sharing!
Thanks! I have an order for a bridal shower cake in early May with peonies! Will definitely use your instructions! Thanks!
I can't can't can't CAN'T wait to try these!!! I love these on cakes.....
wow stunning, going to buy some cutters just so i can try these...thank you
