Hat Box Birthday Cake by lenslady Hat Box Birthday Cake by lenslady
This is a Hat Box birthday cake for my niece. Buttercream icing used as a filling. Fondant in Ivory and white used to cover the cake. The flowers are made from gumpaste. They are edible, but it is much nicer to save them. When they are dry, they'll shatter like fine porcelain if dropped, and I will cry out in despair. LOL Non-toxic coloured powders are used to colour the flowers and I used piping gel to simulate the raindrops on the petals and leaves.

I guess so :)
Do you do this on a professional base or as a hobby, if I may ask?

I just recently learn about gumpaste. and I'm super curious how it works.
It's a bit like marzipan, right?
Did you make your gumpaste yourself (I saw a recipe somewhere) or did you buy it? I actually never saw it at the supermarket, so I don't know where I could buy it.

So sorry for the late reply. Gumpaste is actually better to work with than marzipan, I find, and the results can be much more delicate looking. In North America (I live in Canada) we can actually purchase gumpaste already made at craft and specialty stores. There are places where you can purchase it and have it mailed to you from North America. I have made it in the past and it is just as good. Try to make it yourself first. If you'd like to know where you can order stuff from, let me know and I'll send you some information.
