Gumpaste Wires/Hawaiian Flowers

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Where can I get the wire that is used for gumpaste flowers and how do they attach? Plus are they sanitary enough to use on a cake?

If anyone also knows of any tutorials for gumpaste flowers (especially hawaiian ones) and also how to actually attach them to a cake it would be appreciated. I did a search and didn't come up with much (maybe I am searching for the wrong thing). The tutorials don't necessarily have to be gumpaste as long as they are hawaiian flowers it can be anything really.

For my sister in laws wedding she has a hawaiian theme and I only know how to make a rose and a pansy... icon_lol.gif ...Thanks!

Thanks for the sugarcraft site and the article. I am still in need of any other tutorials that anyone can provide...that article (I only skimmed so far) said that she steamed the gumpaste to seal in the color, has anyone ever done that? VickiC?

Any tutorials on coloring gumpaste would be appreciated too...I normally am such a good 'googler', but lately I am failing miserably...thanks for all your help. thumbs_up.gif

You could easily change the colors on this one...

Yeah, but I need a tutorial or something for the flowers...I have never used the lily nail and it looks as though that is something that would be used for that. Maybe I can ask my instructor at my Wilton Courses...I will be moving onto class 3...maybe she will know a thing or two...LOL...I was hoping to be able to find a site with tutorials on different hawaiian flowers...not finding any...

maybe I will try a bookstore.

Hey, I was glad to just find you something.
sugarcraft should carry them, the instructions are from their site.
On the instructions where it says FMM (page for tools shown) it should take you to the part on their site where you can order the tools from them.
If you already figured that out, cool, but just in case. (Also for others who might read this.)
