Gumpaste Flowers

Last week was a busy one! I didn't really have time to edit pictures or prepare anything to be posted yesterday.
We all had colds and I was getting ready to run my first 10k race. Because I was sick, I decided it was best to go to bed and try and sleep instead of staying up late to edit pictures. And because I was getting ready for my race, the days I ran I was up around 5:30am to try and get a 10k run in before Dave left for work, which also meant going to bed kind of early.

So instead of a baking post, here are some flowers I made in my Wilton Gumpaste and Advanced Gumpaste Flower classes.

The first ones (daisies, carnation, mum, rose and gerbera), I made in one of the first or the maybe the first class I took. They're not the best looking flowers, but not bad for a first attempt.

Big daisy

Small Daisy




Shriveled up Rose


Broken Gerbera

And these ones are from the Advanced Gumpaste Flower class I did. I like these ones!

Now that I'm feeling better, I have no excuse to not have a new post up on Sunday!

Thanks for looking!


  1. Great job Amanda! I am partial to Gerberas and they look amazing!

  2. Wow they are really good Amanda. Even the first ones you did look great. The lilies almost look real. Great job.

  3. Thanks so much! I actually really like making gumpaste flowers :)
