Peony and Scrolls

I love when a client lets you do whatever you want with a cake! I’ve been wanting to try making a gumpaste peony for some time now and also have an excuse to try out my Cricut Cake. This little 6 inch MMF covered cake is the results. TFL.

Thanks BITO, I roll out my gumpaste to #4 on my KitchenAide pasta attachment then smooth it onto the greased cutting mat (make sure there are not air bubles), pop it in the freezer for about 5 minutes. While that’s in the freezer get the machine ready to cut your pattern. After 5 minutes, rush it over and cut. I only did two cuts at a time because the gumpaste thaws quickly. I did try leaving in the freezer for longer, but found that the gumpaste dried out a bit and then my cuts were more jagged. HTH.
