Gum paste peonies

What do you think of my gum paste peonies? I have been working on them the last couple of days. It is my second go with peonies and I must say that they look difficult to make, but they are quite easy to make.

It is the preparation of all the petals that takes time. I have used a lot of small foam pieces to keep all the petals in place while drying.

I have been thinking on giving them a little petal dust, but Im not sure? I think that I will have to make a little “test” peony to see how it looks.

Happy Caking!

    I made some in white, with hints of green petal dust to go on a wedding cake for a family member, they looked beautiful with ivy, white filler flowers and diamant’e sprays.
