I managed to conquer the gum paste. Had a hard time working with it in the past months. So I followed Anita Jamal’s tutorial which she posted on the flickr page. This artisan is very talented! Check out her site…

Normally, one has to work really fast with gum paste as they dry really fast. So I keep my vegetable shortening within reach. The shortening acts like a revival for the gum paste, making it easier to work with and shiny.

I made 5 crysanthemums. These are going to go on cupcakes for 2 wonderful teachers of Copper Hills Elementary School for my 2 cousins. They wanted pandan coconut cupcakes with milk chocolate frosting….yummy. For now, check out my MUMS.
