Gum Paste Flowers and Leaves is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love to make the gum paste flowers and leaves. To me, they are so much easier than butter cream or royal icing; so attractive. I too put them in egg crates to dry but I have also put them right on the fondant and they come out looking very natural. Then I go back and put the dots in the centers. Great looking flowers and leaves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Once you have worked with gumpaste these are quick and easy flowers to make. I have found that using miniature muffin tins work well for drying these flowers. Especially when you are making a lot. Or even egg crates. For the muffin tin, be sure to dust with corn starch first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gumpaste and fondant are so much fun to work with and the results are long lasting and elegant. I like to use egg crates they are easy to store and keep my flowers protected. If you get a chance to take a fondant class it is well worth the time. I learned some great techniques and have been experimenting ever since.
