How To Make A Gum Paste Peony: Part 2

Posted on June 19th, 2013 in Fondant

This is the second part of the tutorial, today we will finish off the peony flower.  If you haven’t read the first part click here.

 

Get the second largest petal cutter and cut out five petals.  Use the foam pad and ball tool to thin out the edges and curl them inwards.

 

Apply edible glue to the bottom half of the petal and place the petal in between the existing petals.  Once the petal has adhered, add some more edible glue to the upper sides of the petal only, so that the petals curve inwards. Continue adding the remaining four petals in the same way.

Let the completed flower dry for 24 hours.  Once it is dry feel free to decorate your cupcake or cake with the flower.

 

Keep your flowers in a cool and dry place. Also keep them away from the sun, the sun tends to fade the color away.

 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

 

Stay tuned for the hydrangea flower bud and hydrangea flower.
