Gumpaste Carnations

 Gumpaste Carnations  on Cake Central

My first attempt at gumpaste carnations. I've been really intimidated by all that frilling. It really wasn't bad!! They're pretty fast to make compared to a lot of other flowers

Using the OP Carnation cutter I cut out my flowers in white gumpaste then brushed them with petal dust. Frilled the edge with a toothpick.I stacked 3 petals then folded the 4th in half then folded before placing it in the middle of the 3 stacked ones. Thanks for all the great comments!!

These are really lovely. Frilling with a toothpick takes such a long time. Have you tried using a crimped cutter and a ball tool for ruffling on a foam cel mat? It's so much faster and easier.

These are very nice and done the way carnations should be done. Gumpaste makes a much nicer and more realistic flower than fondant.
