a good book to learn to do gumpaste flowers. I have the Wilton cutter set and the book but I don't like how some of the flowers look fake. The daisies are the worst!

I know what you mean. It's funny, I bought the Wilton book 10 years ago and didn't think I could ever make anything that neat. And then I lost it in the tons of books I own and found it earlier this year and it just wasn't that impressive.

Toba Garrett's got some good instructions in her book.

Did you see the link that someone posted to the list of downloadable books? There are some flower-making books there, maybe you could preview them and see what you might like enough to buy.

I like Alan Dunn, Scott Clark Woolley and Nicholas Lodge's books.
