Gumpaste Carnations

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.
