Hey all! I recently got an order that requires lots of gumpaste ranunculus so I took a moment to film how I made one of them. All you need is a small styrofoam ball and an oval cutter. I rolled out green and white gumpaste to the thinnest setting on my pasta roller so the petals can be delicate. I cut out a bunch of ovals. Some of them I cut in half to make the first few layers of petals and then the outside layers I used the entire oval as the petals. It is a simple flower to make, doesn't require any wires and doesn't take that long either. Try you hands at a few because these flowers look so sweet on top of a cake!
