I have spent the paste week searching for a tutorial for making gum paste parrot tulips. I purchased a set of cutters and mold for this tulip but the instructions that came with it are not very good. I'm ready to give up. I did some petals yesterday and they look really nice but putting them together to make a flower was a bit of a disaster.
Has anyone ever used these cutters and molds, does anyone know of a tutorial that I can access or purchase. There may be one in Scot Clark Wooley's book or dvd but frankly they are too pricey for me right now. I am not a professional and this is for a wedding cake for my niece.
