I had it written. Almost. Then it got shoved aside and you know what they say…out of sight, out of mind!
These are the first gumpaste roses that I feel good about. The reason? I took an online class from Tracy at Cotton and Crumbs. All the way from England.
I’ve adored her roses and cakes and peonies forever. I love her cake designs. I love the old-fashioned look of her cakes.
So when I found an online class of her teaching how to make those fabulous, huge roses, I was determined to take it.
These online classes are fantastic. You go as slow as you want and with my handy dandy iPad, I can snuggle it right up to me as I work! Pause at will, rewind, enlarge…it has it all! The plus is Tracy’s lovely British accent!
Next up? Peonies, please. I’m waiting patiently. I’ve made some that were ok but I want to see how she makes them. 🙂
BTW, I made this for a DiL’s birthday back in June.
