Discover new ways to express your creativity using gum paste to shape, mold, and detail life-life flowers. Start by refreshing your knowledge of gum paste fundamentals including storing, tinting, and working with gum paste. Since the focus of this course is the creation of wired flowers, your Wilton instructor will show you how to use florist wire and tape to create flower and leaf stems. Your flower making will then start with the introduction of the classic, gum paste blossom, featuring the use of an ejector cutter and impression mold to cut and form this tiny flower. Move on to the Gerbera Daisy, with its molded center and layers of petals. Finally, finish the lesson by preparing a wired sweet pea center, to be completed in a later lesson.

With the briar rose you will learn how to assemble detailed stamens, cut and shape the petals and calyx, and assemble the flower on a wire. All key skills for gum paste flower making.

Lesson 3
Class starts with the stephanotis, a tiny, star-shaped flower that is ideal for bouquets and borders. With its pointed bud and raised petals, it will expand your skills for fine, subtle details. You’ll also complete the sweet pea, using the pre-prepared center from Lesson 1. Finally, add some colorful finishing touches for your flowers, as your Wilton instructor shows you how to use Color Dust highlights on petals and leaves.

Lesson 4
Your flowers are almost ready to place on a cake! Start by adding the finishing touches with Color Dust to your stephanotis and sweet pea flowers. In addition, you’ll also learn how to detail your Stargazer lily petals, and assemble them with the leaves and stamens to create an amazingly life like flower. Combine your blossom stems and wire them together to create a sweet bouquet. Then learn how to build additional arrangements with the larger flowers and leaves you made. To round out your floral decorating skills, your instructor will show you how to use flower spikes to arrange and place your flowers on the cake.
