Flowers you can eat. Although, why would you?

The whole class at Bonnie Gordon School

It's been a little while since I've been blogging about my baking adventures, but I've been a busy bee behind the scenes.

Most recently I attended another course with Bonnie Gordon and this time created some wonderful gum paste flowers. What a delightful experience!

On February 27th and 28th I spent the weekend with a bunch of lovely ladies creating 2 flowers... yup, that's right 2 days to create 2 flowers. Although it was a very long careful process, the outcome was absolutely amazing. Our teacher Jenny Maw taught us step by step how to create these wonderful blossoms that could be applied to any cake or pastry creation.
