Today in Advanced Baking Chef Mary Helen taught us how to make gum paste flowers.
We each started off with some corn starch, a piece of gumpaste, a piece of cheese cloth, and a piece of twine.
We used the cheese cloth and twine to make a dusting bag for the corn starch.
We took the little piece of gumpaste and broke it into little pieces.
We then added a tablespoon of hot water and stirred.
This made our gumpaste glue.
Next we got a new piece of gumpaste and kneaded it.
Then we rolled it out and used these flower shaped cutters to cut out different flower shapes.
Here I made a daisy!
Next I made a rose!
Here are some of the flowers that Chef Mary Helen made.
Next week we are starting on our wedding cakes!!
