Gum paste flowers can add impressive elegance to your baked creations but you need to learn the elusive art of molding them before you can adorn a cake. In Cake Decorating: Gorgeous Gum Paste Flowers, Lucinda Larson will share her secrets for recreating the beauty of nature using gum paste.

If you have ever worked with gum paste you know it hardens quickly. In this course you’ll learn sculpting techniques and tricks that will help you shape the paste into beautiful, realistic flowers well before it firms up.
