I am wondering if anyone will share their favorite book on making gum paste flowers? I am really interested in learning to make them. I have never done any. I have made elementary roses out of tootsie rolls and modelling chocolate.
I am only a hobbyist. I have a full-time job and two small toddlers, so taking a class anywhere is kind of out of the question. But I am pretty good at self-teaching and I don't mind spending hours and hours of evening time to make pretty cake elements. icon_smile.gif
Thanks for any and all suggestions.

Two good ones are Sugar Roses for Cakes and Sugar Orchids for Cakes, both by Alan Dunn/Tombi Peck/Tony Warren. I got both of them through, and they have really beautiful flowers and some filler flowers and leaves, too.
