Welcome to CC!

How new are you to cake decorating? The reason I ask is to get an idea of what you already know. I love making gumpaste flowers, buy they are not always easy. Some orhids are more difficult than others too.

The gumpaste that you use is very important. The proper tools, cutters, and veiners make a difference as well.

If you could give me some specifics I will do what I can to help.

If you're looking to make them yourself, youtube has some great tutorials (many from the wonderful ladies here)...

I'm a beginner and have found between youtube, books and practice making flowers is actually becoming a favourite activity. icon_smile.gif
