Comment Poppy Tutorial #1: How to Make a Gum Paste Poppy (using heart shaped cutters)

Jenny Kennedy ...

This is my very first tutorial (and my first tutorial for Jenny’s Haute Cakes). I have learned so much from the generous tutorials of others, I swore as soon as I felt like I had something to share, I would share it! When a client wanted poppies on her wedding cake I turned to Google for guidance and couldn’t find any tutorials! I have made enough sugar flowers I thought I could figure it out. This is what I came up with. No special cutters are required. I hope this is helpful! It may include some obvious steps for more seasoned cakers, but I wanted it to be accessible for even new bakers (like me not too long ago!), so bear with me. I hope at least some of you find this helpful. I welcome any questions, feedback or suggestions. Happy caking!
