I'm sure I'm in the wrong forum but here's the question.
I really want to get into making my own sugar flowers but not sure where to start as far as what recipe to use.
Those of you who make your own flowers, what recipe do you use? Thanks!
Chef Nicholas Lodge's recipe for gumpaste is excellent for sugar flowers. If you go to First Impressions mold's website they have his recipe posted.
So far I have used Wilton's premade gumpaste, or fondant with gum tex or tylose added in.
Like TexasSugar, I use the Wilton premade gumpaste. I love it! ALL of my flowers are made from it. It has recently gone up in price to $10.99 (used to be 8.99) but it still a bargain when you use a Hobbly Lobby, JoAnn's, or Michael"s coupon! If you are just starting out, this is a great item with which to learn. Keep it in an airtight container at all times as all gumpaste dries out quickly.
I use tylose gumpaste. Its very easy to make, Tonedna's blog has the recipe and she also demonstrates how to make it in a video.
