Making ivy leaves

Let's add a touch of greenery by making some ivy leaves using green sugarpaste with added gum tragacanth.

Roll out the paste thinly on a lightly dusted work surface.

and cut out a leaf using a medium ivy leaf cutter.

The one I have used veins the leaf at the same time as it cuts. Alternately, you could use a special veining mat or a clean real leaf.

Using the bone tool, ball the edges gently all the way round.
Leave to dry or until stiff enough to hold their shape.

 

Next: assemble the daisy decoration
