Columbine

Forum: Gumpaste modeling and flowers

I have a birthday cake order from a friend on the 4th and she asked for a flower I have not only never made before but ever even seen in real life. Also I had eye surgery yesterday so have empathy for me. This is either the Columbine she asked for, or a lavender Daffodil, you decide! :)

Lovely….Columbine is very common here in Canada where I live. One of the earliest flowering spring plants. Many varieties…

Your columbine flower is beautiful! Wishing you a speedy recovery from your eye surgery!

Thank you. I think I am going to do a few white Hydrangea to soften the look of the Columbine.
Thank you Toni, surgery went well but vision is still fuzzy. Doctor says it will clear more with each day. I hope he is right, but I am in no pain and think maybe vision is a bit better today.

Looks very pretty Shirley! I hope your eye gets better very soon! :-) x

Cakeicer (Shirley) ...

Okay, not bad for a first try and only the vision of one eye. :) a few gumpaste Hydrangea in there to soften the look of the Columbine.

Awww, that is a gorgeous topper, Shirley and your columbines look fantastic!

Thank you Sandra and Elli. Having never seen one in person I hope the birthday girl recognizes it as her favorite Columbine.
