Mrs. Rooster and I decided to try our hand at gum paste for her daughter's birthdays. Wow! It was so much easier to master than fondant. We purchased the mix from Michael's with a coupon. We used cookie cutters to cut out the shapes. Gum paste shapes really keep their form, unlike fondant that can stretch. The daisy flowers were placed on an egg carton that was flipped upside down. Our next plan . . . To actually sell a cake for profit.
We ended up being lazy and didn’t roll circles for the centers of the daisies.
