The sugar peony in this tutorial is modeled after a yellow tree peony I came across. The shape was a bit different than the usual peonies I see and I loved the color. I did not have any pre-made peony stamens on hand so I made my own. One of the key elements of making this gumpaste creation I believe is in creating the delicate and very thin petals (see through in some areas is what you are going for) – which you will make without the use of either a cel board or a pasta roller; but if you can or prefer to use such, by all means, please do so.

Thank you for watching.
