Thinly rolled gum paste is pressed with a stencil and then colored using luster dust.  Petals are cut, molded over the bowl of a soup spoon, and left to dry. A center is rolled.  Petals are assembled in a bowl shaped piece of aluminum foil using royal icing.  Time consuming, but fun and makes a lovely effect.

This is the cake I made for my daughter's wedding. It's covered with fondant and lace appliques. The roses are pale pink gumpaste.  I made a sugar vase for the topper and filled it with more roses.

Buttercream "wrapping paper", and gumpaste bow.  This was my FIRST attempt with gum paste, and I think it turned-out okay.  The gift tag was done with gum paste as well.

Made this at CA Cake Camp while in class with Dianne Gruenberg.  She teaches gumpaste using "the soft method".  Her paste is called Platinum paste and you roll it so that you can read a newspaper through it.  It's amazing stuff and creates such thin, natural flowers.  This one is dry dusted with petal dust and then dipped in edible laquer.

This is a simple square wedding cake.  The very bottom layer is a dummy, and the two pink layers are white cake soaked with rum simple syrup and filled with a rum cream filling.  The middle black layer is a chocolate cake with a coconut pecan filling.  All covered in fondant.  I hand made the roses for the top tier of the cake out of gum paste and the vase holding them was made out of a styrofoam ball.

Well, I finially did it! My first wedding cake is done. I owe so much to this site. Thank you all for helping me. The top is lemon, middle is strawberry shortcake (my own creation), the bottom is a chocolate/banana (my own creation). The plumarias are gum paste, it was my first time with them. I has a few that cracked but I thinks it's because I didn't let them dry all the way. Around the cake a chcoolate shell candies I made. They came out cute, but nobody thought they were chocolate, so none were eaten.

This was a fun one to make.  It's a basic white cake with lemon filling and bc frosting.  All the decorations were made of gum paste.  I had a hard time getting the gum paste black and red so I ended up painting the stars and steamers with food coloring then dusting them with silver and gold for sparkles.

I made this cake for a friend whose bicycle club is having their 30th anniversary.  I was unable to transfer their logo onto the cake (it was a quite detailed picture of a guy on a bike) because it is LITERALLY 106 degrees today and I have a swamp cooler (no ac) and so the heat and humidity were working against me so the buttercream didn't fully crust so I couldn't put the parchment paper transfer onto the cake.  I freehanded the bike, I hate it, but it was all I could do.  The roses and daisys are gumpaste

This is a white cake with vanilla pudding.  I used royal icing for the dam.  The flowers are made of gum paste with royal frosting center.  THe cake is covered with cream cheese frosting and mm fondant.  I used yellow fondant to make circles around the cake.  I modeled it after "yellow circles" on brides magazine website.  This is a 6in and a 4in cake.  I made it just for fun... Trying to figure out who to give it to :)

I made this for a woman who had purchased these gumpaste flowers online and I made them into the vine using wire and ivory floral tape. She bought the birds in place of a traditional top. It is an Italian Creme cake with lemon curd filling and cream cheese icing. She wanted very simple. Nothing else on it. I wish I had a better picture, but.....

The color of the icing and carriage looked very close at home.  I didn't realize there was such a difference.  Next time I'll add a little color to the Gum Paste.

This is a practice cake I did to practice the stringwork.  I made the birds nest out of gum paste and had nothing to use it for.  The daisies are gumpaste also. Lemon Cream Cheese frosting, I love the VIVA paper towel trick, I am skeptical no more!

This cake is all buttercream except for the gumpaste lily's. The bride wanted a very plain, white cake, except for a garland of lily's & ivy sweeping down one side... however, it was 117 degrees that day! So, I didn't completely fill-in with lily's, incase they started slinking down, which she was fine with. So, really scary delivering & assembling in that heat, I had to assemble in an office with AC & then my husband & brother had to carry it about 20 yards! But it all worked-out great! Thanks for looking!

I had never used gum paste to make flowers before an now I am hooked. It is very easy to work with... Am happy with the coloring ease also. Hope you enjoy.

This was a graduation cake I made this past weekend for a few friends of my daughters.  The cake itself was strawberry with creamcheese filling.  The decorations were made with gum paste and then covered with edible images.  The tire tracks on the cake were made from rice paper.  Yes there is a long story behind the decorations as they represent something that happened to each of them.

My first attempt at working with gum past.  It was very fun and surprisingly easy to get the hang of.  I know that these are one of the easiest flowers, but I was very pleased with how they turned out.  They were for a neighbors wedding cake.

I took Colette Peters' Advanced Fondant class at Wilton in April.  We had a choice to make an all white cake, a crooked cake, or a trompe l'oeil cake  ("fool the eye" in French--had to look like something real).  I designed this biscotti barrel.  It's a carved styrofoam dummy--lordy, that's messy work--covered in handpainted fondant (my design) and topped with handmade, airbrushed, fondant covered, styrofoam biscotti. Gumpaste butterfly, napkin, plate, & bug.  Yes, it could (pretty easily) be made real.

I took a gum paste class at Wilton in April with Colette Peters. We made several flowers, but I concentrated on roses and used them on my final cake.  The cake is a technique cake showing most of what she taught us, including brush embroidery, ropes, quilting, crimping, etc. Photo is poor, sorry.

This is my first attempt at gum paste flowers.  I made the roses and a few filler flowers plus the leaves.  The cake is buttercream covered with fondant and then buttercream accents.  I just recently purchased the impression mat and am slowly getting used to using it.

Made these at CA Cake Camp in class with Debbie Brown. All Gum paste with only 2 pieces of uncooked spaghetti for neck support.  No patterns or molds--all hand modeled using balls and sausages of gum paste. Hair and flowers were made using the Wilton ejection blossom cutter. Debbie is a delightful teacher with a dry wit.
