How to make some Gumpaste Flowers

Two weeks ago, I made ​​a nice monkey cake with on the top some beautiful flowers. I made these flowers with gumpaste. If you don't have gumpaste and you want to make it yourself, click here for the "How to make gumpaste" tutorial.  You can also make these flowers with fondant, but you have to work faster because fondant is not as elastic as gumpaste.

I have also another flower tutorial on my blog. If you want to read that blog click here.

I received a lot of emails asking me if I can show how I made the flowers on the monkey cake. In this blog I'm  going to show you how I made these flowers. They are very easy to make. You just need a little bit of patience because it is a process to make them.

Happy Monkey Cake

This is a very special cake. I received a message 2 weeks ago from a lady who work at a place for mentally disabled people. She asked me if I can make a special cake for a lady who is turning 91 years old. Her name is Corrie and she is a mentally disabled woman. She told me that Corrie love Apes and colors. So I could make the cake as colorful as I can.

I was very happy to make this cake, because Corrie is special and she is turning a respectful age. Hopefully I can turned at least 45 year old.

I start first by sketching the cake. I usually  sketch my cakes ideas and check which colors will fit with my cake idea.


All the flowers on the cake are handmade with gumpaste. So I had to make the flowers in advance, so they can dry. Gumpaste flowers are very delicate so they need to dry properly so you can use them on your cake. Below you can see the flowers, that I made for this cake. In another blog I will put the how to make these flowers. They are very easy to make. You only need to have…
