Sugar Flowers

Along with all the sewing, I love cake decorating and actually have a little corner of my living room set aside for this. There is a special sugar paste called "gumpaste" that can be transformed into beautiful sugar flowers. I have a good friend, Verdie, who is my partner in crime, and we spend half a day a week filling orders or just playing around with our gumpaste! This is a sugar moth orchid. Looks almost real!

Hi It does look real. How are these done? Would love to learn.

You need special cutters and veiners to make these, and formers to keep the throat's shape.
