I am about a week into the gum paste flowers, and have already seen some improvement. I’ve been impressed by how streamlined the Wilton process is, and I recommend it, despite the sticker shock ($21, plus miscellany.) Any OCD-prone spazz can do it if I can.

Anyway, here’s today’s work: two gum paste orchids on a chocolate cupcake with some of the leftover lemon buttercream icing. Incidentally, my New Year’s resolution was to make a cake with realistic orchids on it (I was running a fever for the entire month of December, so this is not as weird as it might seem. Or it is.) Close to the finish line.
