Video: How to Make a Gumpaste Ranunculus - Sugar Flower Tutorial

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!
