Fantasy Gumpaste Flowers is rated 4.4118 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pretty! By rolling your gumpaste quite thin and lightly ruffling the edges with a ball tool you can create a very sophisticated looking flower that resembles a Hibiscus and one that is suitable for a variety of flower themed cakes. Specifically, I used the flowers for a Hawaiiian themed cake. I colored them with a variety of Wilton gel colors and when they were dry, I lightly dusted them with luster dust then steamed them to set the color and to add a bit of shine. You can use the heart shaped cutter for a variety of other gumpaste or fondant items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Gumpaste Fantasy Flower is truly breathtaking and much easier to make than it looks. Made correctly, it looks like a porcelain flower; very dramatic. Try covering your 10" round board with Fondant. On it place an 8" round cake covered with the same color Fondant. Make a wide band Fondant ribbon and place it around the bottom of your cake with the tails of the ribbon draped across your Fondant covered board. Make a large brightly colored Fantasy Flower and attach it to the center of your ribbon. You will have a beautiful Spring Hat. Enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I make these to put on top of Petit fours for an open house. I used rolled fondant because I didn't have any gum paste and well I wished I used gum paste! The idea and the process were very easy but the fondant did not give them the delicate edging. I am lucky that the host of the party doesn't bake because she still thought they were beautiful. I will try them again with the proper materials!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did these flowers in a bouquet with "wild rose" style made from icing. They made very easy and elegant looking flowers and with the Wilton kit, it is very easy to male several in no time at all. Next time I will make a few different shades of red to pink to mauve to make the bouquet more life like. I highly recommend theres easy flowers for your next elegant cake design!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These are beautiful flowers, but like another reviewer said they tend to be flat on the bottom. I also had problems when drying them to keep the petals separated. I learned a tip from my decorating instructor to use cosmetic wedges to put in between the layers. I tried this on my second go at these flowers and it they turned out better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These flowers are pretty easy to make. I find the thinner I roll the fondant or gumpaste, the prettier the flower. They are beautful in any color. Using different size hearts will give different size flowers. I will use just the inside petals as a smaller filler flower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An excellent and fairly quick flower for many applications. You can easily make different size blooms simply by using varying sized heart cutters. I often use a regular size muffin pan or small ramekins to dry the large blooms, since I don't have a mini ball pan.
