hey everyone,

really need some help, I'm having a blonde day/week/month!

For some reason the petals on my sugar gerbera's keep breaking. I made 20, and all but one has broken. Any suggestions...

I am using flower paste etc...

How many are you rolling out at once? It dries so quickly that I find you can only roll out and cut one flower (especially if they are larger) and keep the remaining sugar paste covered well (under a glass). I then work with the one flower and set it out to dry, and carry on with rolling and cutting the next flower. Maybe you are already doing this, but it is one suggestion.

Good luck!
