This is my first gumpaste flower and it was hard!!! I would really like your suggestions on how I could improve- I know I need a lot of practice but your comments will help a great deal IMG_00000817.jpg 619k .jpg file IMG_00000816.jpg 663k .jpg file

It looks beautiful!  Maybe a little more of an overlap on the bottom petals.

Keep up the practicing.  I haven't ventured into gumpaste yet, so Good for You.

Made tiny roses out of Satin Ice fondant:

made big roses out of homemade modeling chocolate:

homemade Modeling Chocolate roses, (milk choc clay, dark choc clay, white chocolate clay,)Swiss Meringue Buttercream

but the realism & beauty of gumpaste flowers is still a skill I have yet to attempt:

I just sent for a video from a website called 'International Sugar Art Collection' by Nicholas Lodge.  A video is a good way for me to get an idea of how they make those awesome real life looking flowers & sprays for professional cakes.

Also sent for a book called 'Sugar Roses for Cakes' by Tombi Beck.......hope all this professional instruction will set me on a good path to success.

cakealicious7: your rose is inspirational.  nicely formed petals.

I look forward to the pros offering suggestions so that I may learn also.
