Rose Petals

Start with a small ball of gum paste or sugarpaste with added gum tragacanth.

Knead into a smooth shape.

Dust your work area with a bit of powder or icing sugar.

Roll out the colored paste very thinly.

Gently peel away from the rolling pin if the paste wraps itself around the pin. This often happens when rolling out paste this thinly.

To make the petals, cut one at a time using a petal cutter.

Place the cut-out petal onto the palm of your hand or onto a clean piece of sponge.

Ball the edge using the bone or ball modelling tool.

Next: See how that is done.
