How to make a gum paste Rose
Quite a few of you have been asking me to make a tutorial on how to make the gum paste Rose. So here’s an easy and simple collage of how to make a gum paste Rose. This is the basic and good for anyone who would like to start. I will make a more thorough PDF tutorial at a later stage with more details and perhaps you will find that more useful. .
Well all written on the collage… I hope it helps.
Don’t forget to check my Facebook page for ‘Tip Thursdays’ where I have one on which wires are suitable for which Gum paste flowers as well as some tips on working with Gum paste. I’ve also already shared my gum paste recipe with you .
So; back to how to make a gum paste Rose.
I used these FMM Cutters. You could also do the same with round /circle cutters.
Here’s a close up of the rose..
Here’s a smaller one on a cupcake but made without any cutters or tools. Free hand.
Yup, before I became a cake decorator, I made roses free hand.. Still do.. I think they are absolutely beautiful.
Some day I’ll make a post on that and show you how I make mine.
I hope this helps. Happy cake decorating.
