Hi, i was wondering if you gumpaste experts could help me out with making tulips, should I use floral wire and do each pedal individually??? or is there an easier way?? also, what do you use/do to get the pedals to "cup" ????

thanks for any help

If you will pm me your email address I will send you instructions for making gumpaste Tulips. I find them one of the easier flowers to make in sugar and they are quite fast as well.

Here is one I made with this method.

I'm not an expert by a loooonnnngg shot. I'll leave that to ShirleyW. BUT, in my photos-May Wedding- I have some gumpaste tulips. My cake buddies and I did them we put them in egg cartons to get the "cup" look!

Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Beth, I am not an expert either. There are many sugar flower artists who are much better than me. One would be a member here, Stewart (theflowerguy) I just am a fast learner and love doing gumpaste flowers. My way of making them is Nic Lodge's method.

ShirleyW: ROCK! But, it's nice that you remain humble and give credit where credit is due.
I only hope to be as good as other CCer's in the sugar flower arena SOMEDAY!

Hi Shirley.  I made all my roses and gardenias for a wedding out of gumpaste and they were stunning.   Would you include me in your loop for making gumpaste tulips?   I would love to learn.

Thanks in advance
