more fun with wilton: advanced gum paste flowers (course 4)

I recently spent four mornings under the tutelage of my good friend Evelyn, learning how to make flowers out of gum paste. We had a terrific group in our class and made lots of gerbera daisies, sweet peas, stargazer lilies, briar roses and stephanotis, plus ivy and lily leaves. This is the first Wilton class that I’ve taken in which I haven’t had to bake a cake and honestly, I was soooooo relieved as it’s been a crazy spring. In lieu of a finale cake, we were supposed to make a spray out of our finished flowers, but I just couldn’t wrap my brain around arranging them that morning. So here they are, in their unbound glory!
