Here's the passion flower I made this weekend in class. It took roughly 5 hours to put all of the pieces together. Everything is gumpaste! The flower's story is that it's a representation of the Crucifixion of Christ. The red styles represent the 3 nails, the round white ovary - the hammer, the 5 stamen - the 5 wounds, the spiked corolla - the crown of thorns, and the tens sepals (petals) - the 10 loyal apostles. It was a fanstastic experience.
