Rated 3 out of 5 by from These flowers are alot easier then I expected. Once you get the hang of them you can make alot in no time. I dust paint them for a more realistic look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are my favorite types of flowers. They make for beautiful decorations on cakes. I didnt think that curling the edge of the flowers were as easy as it seems in the directions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After I got this down, it is so easy! I love the calla lily gum paste flowers, they add just the right elegance to a cake. I think they are much easier and look better than butter cream flowers. The steps are very easy to follow, just make sure when you are inserting your center that you don't accidentally brush off some of the yellow sprinkles.
