Breathtaking Wedding Cakes with Gum Paste Flowers
These wedding cakes are so breathtakingly beautiful, I have to remind myself these flowers were created from ordinary sugar, water, gum paste and food coloring. You can make these yourself with pre-made gum paste powder or create it from scratch using powdered sugar, egg whites and an agent called tylose powder. I've often read that "from scratch" is less expensive but I see that a 16 ounce can of Wilton Gum Paste Mix sells for just over five dollars on Amazon, and will provide you with enough dough to create 100 daisies or fifty remarkable gum paste roses. Since making gum paste flowers requires more time than talent, you might want to make the prep work as easy as you can.
