All of my cake friends know that I do not like to make gumpaste flowers. I'll try to start some flowers but I grumble about it the whole time. I'll make gumpaste people or figures any day over working on flowers. Flower just take so long! Can you hear the whining? I sound like my kids. However, a couple of months ago I was determined to prove that I actually could make a flower if I really wanted to. I decided to work on roses since everyone starts with roses in hope that meant they would be the easiest flower. I still don't know if they are the easiest but I gave it a good try. I have some great teachers and I think they turned out ok. This is the best rose of the bunch. I haven't dusted it yet. Hopefully, with a little color and dimension it will really be something to blog about!
