Learned to make this in the Gum Paste Flowers class. I thought it was fairly straightforward, although my instructor did a wonderful job explaining it. We made six petals, all softened around the edges, in two different widths (the cutters come in the class kit), and three leaves. You can use the Color Dust to add some color to the lilies, and we used the fine tip food-safe markers to add tiny dots to the leaves.
