Here are my first Gumpaste Roses. In the background of the larger photo are the ones I did using the Wilton Course 3 five petal method. After lots of reading, and numerous posts here at CC. I took all the advice and tried the individual petal method. What a difference. Thanks all for the advice everyone! They still need some work but I Think I've Got It!... or at least I'm very close. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!
