How do I make a gum paste rose? I went and bought the Wilton how-to make beautiful gumpaste flowers kit. I have been trying it all week and my rose looks nothing like the one in the book. I found a how to make a rose out of bubble gum and it looks better than the one I did with gum paste. My gum paste seems too floppy. I am thinking about buying the Wilton gum paste rose kit. Any suggestions?
What kind of problems are you having? I taught myself the flowers, and started with the wilton kit as it was the only available cutters. I suspect your problem is the paste. I have tried all sorts of diffrent recipes and have found the best is Nicholas lodge's which is posted on his web site.
If I can answer any other questions just ask
