Need help figuring out the flower part, do you put the die in the dough first or are you painting the white a color?
Does anyone have a pattern.
little confused by this question, are you using gumpaste or fondant?
do you have any of the wilton/ or anyother brand gumpaste/sugar paste tools?
do you have any of the petal cutters that come in the gumpaste flower kits?
about coloring or dying them, yes I start with a chunk of gumpaste or fondant what ever I am using at the time then use a gel dye and color it, then for a pearl affect or more color detail I use petal dust and luster dust once it has dried.
I just made a hawaiian themed wedding cake its in my pics and I did my one of these flowers, but I used different cutters that are inthe wilton gumpaste flower kit and the gumpaste tools for detail.
