I've been putting it off for awhile now, cause i'm so intimidated, but I want to make my first gumpaste/fondant flower. What is the easiest/simplest flower to make that I can try? I tried making a BC flower once(fail!!!). I found out that the consistency needs to be just right for those. But, I think a fondant/gumpaste one would be easier if I could get the technique down. So any tips and suggestions would be great.
