Gumpaste flowers

This is just going to be a quicky blog about gumpaste flowers we made last week in class. It was a part of the wedding cake section (I will soon be posting my creation and more about the wedding cake classes) at GBC, taught by the talented Klara Johnson. This is my favourite of the three gumpaste roses that I did. I also made calla lilies and primroses.

If you are wondering, "what is this 'gumpaste' Emily keeps talking about?" Well wonder no more! Gumpaste is an edible dough made out of sugar, gelatin, cornstarch, meringue powder, and a few other ingredients. In the world of cakes it is used to make beautiful flowers and other decorations.
