Gum Paste Poinsettias

Sorry you haven't heard from me in a little while; I was very busy making a Turducken for Thanksgiving.  This weekend I've been back at the sugar, however!  I am preparing for another cake competition next weekend.  This is another local contest-- The Holiday Cake Affair.

I've spent a lot of time playing with gum paste this weekend...  I made 3 of these giant white poinsettias.

I have a few other things in the works too, but I'll keep it a surprise...  ;)

Each of these poinsettias consists of almost 40 different pieces, so they really took quite some time.  However, I'm really happy with how they turned out.  I just hope I find a safe way to secure them to my cake.

Hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving!  More sugary goodness coming your way soon... it's going to be a busy week for me! :)


  1. Best of luck in the contest!
    You are so talented and awesome!

  2. This is beautiful! If you don't mind my asking, what veining tool did you use to create it? I would like to achieve something similar but cannot seem to find a veining tool that would be large enough for something like this.

  3. Okay this is ABSOLUTELY amazing!!

    Wondering if you have a tutorial for these.
    Thank you
