Step 1

1 week in advance: Make gum paste flowers following instructions in cutter set book unless otherwise noted.

Tint 8 oz. gum paste green for calyxes and leaves; flowers will be white with Color Dust highlights (mix equal parts white with Color Dust shade noted). Make 54 large roses on 4 in. long 20-gauge wires; brush 18 each with deep pink, orange and goldenrod Color Dust. Let dry upside down on drying rack.

Make 36 briar roses without calyxes, using a 1/2 in. diameter gum paste ball for center and inserting eight stamens rather than thread. Brush centers with goldenrod and petals with deep pink Color Dust. Let dry in 3 in. flower forming cups (mold additional cups from foil).

Make 40 2-layer daisies without wires. Brush centers with goldenrod Color Dust and 20 flowers each with deep pink and goldenrod Color Dust. Let dry in 3 in. flower forming cups.

Make 40 fantasy flowers.

Make 140 leaves. Roll out green gum paste 1/16 in. thick; cut leaves using large rose leaf cutter from set. Imprint leaves in rose leaf mold from flower impression set and let dry in varied positions on cornstarch-dusted wave flower formers.

Individual hand-shaped petals are the secret to the incredible realism of Gum Paste Roses. Gum paste can be rolled very thin, yet hold its shape. As a result, your flowers will have texture and form that rivals nature.

Your homemade cupcakes will be even more tempting when you add a pretty peak of icing on top! We used tip 2A here, but any large round tip will work.

A fun, casual flower found in a variety of colors. Can be a single cut-out or multi-layered flower, flat or cupped, positioned directly on the cake arranged in a group as a bouquet.

Use food-safe Wilton Pearl Dust and Color Dust to brush or paint hints of contrasting color on your decorations.

Delicate white dotted flowers built on a star — a perfect look for winter wedding cupcakes and holiday designs.
