I meet with a group of fabulous ladies once a week to work on different gumpaste flowers...well, at least it started out that way. I started the group with the intention of learning to make all kinds of beautiful gumpaste flowers, but while the rest of the group has tried stephanotis, roses, peonies, hydrangeas, ect. I found I prefer to make little gumpaste people.
So, when I showed up for group and one of my friend says she is working on a Caddy Shack cake and wants to have a gnome popping out of the cake, but she doesn't know where to start, I volunteer to do it for her because I would much rather do that than try and catch up on the flower everyone else is learning to make.
I know he isn't finished. He still needs his arms and hands, but I think he is super cute and I am kind of sad I can't keep him to myself!
