But the more I worked on it, the better I liked it! The dimensional flowers and leaves formed these awesome shadows that really added a lot of contrast to the cake. When I was finished I stepped back and was really proud with how it came out.
I formed and sculpted all of the flowers and leaves from gumpaste and let them dry nice and hard.
Normally I would have used my trusty ribbon cutter to make all those vines, but the gumpaste I was working with was so tough that I was using the pasta machine to roll it nice and thin. Out of curiosity I set it on one of the cutter settings and it cut nice long gumpaste "noodles" for me that worked out great!
Have a great week and stay out of the heat!
