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!

    These peonies are my favorite flower. I will have to learn how to make them for my retirement party.

    You can make them months in advance. Just remember to keep them in a box placed in a dark place.
