Gum Paste Mum is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I created and placed three gumpaste mums on top of a Thanksgiving cake and surrounded them with autumn leaves. The overall effect was beautiful and drew some wonderful complements because they actually looked real! My only issue was trying to remove the petal from the cutter as the gumpaste stuck between each of the individual petals. It didn't help to use cornstarch on the cutter. So, I used a toothpick to clean up each of those sections. Once each layer was applied on top of another they covered up those scraggly areas nicely to where they weren't noticable. I omitted the "base" because my petals weren't curling over as much as the photo shows. After stacking the layers I prepared a small ball of gumpaste to serve as my centers and used tweezers to gently "pull out" the gumpaste on the ball to replicate the center of the mum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love to make these almost as much as daisies, but they are more time consuming. I make them and dust them with chalk colors and make bouquets out of them. My mother enjoyed them so much that I made her an entire bouquet out of them and put them in a tiny crystal vase for her. That was 2 years ago and it still sits in her china cabinet and looks like it did the day I gave it to her.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the look of the flower, but the first time I made it i found that it didn't look the picture. With more practice, I have gotten better. I wouldn't say that this flower is hard, but I wouldn't say it is easy either. It looks great on a cake though!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This flower looks so good on everything but I had a hard time fanning the petals to make it look like a real flower vs a fondant ball. You have to make sure your petals are thin/thick enough and watch the pressure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just learned how to do the Gum Paste Mum and I think it is the easiest flower next to the daisy and so beautiful. It can stand alone on top of a cupcake or part of a bouquet on a larger cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from when viewed GPmum looks difficult, however it is one of the most easiest flowers to make, using gerbara cutters the mum can become a full headed mum - wired or unwired.
