Wilton Course #2 - Flowers and Cake Design

My Wilton #2 class started yesterday.  We don't have to bring cakes until the last class.  A final exam cake!  lol  I was relived, that is one less thing for me to do every week!  :)

We made flowers last night.  We used Wilton Neon Color Fondant and Wilton Gum Paste.  She had us use equal amounts of fondant and gum paste.  We twisted and rolled it around in order to get the colors to mix together until you didn't see any streaks of white from the gum paste.  I don't think you can use this mixture in the Cricut Cake machine, but I might surf the web and see if anyone has.  But, she did tell me that you can use the Wilton Candy Clay recipe.  She said this will taste better than the gum paste or fondant.  I will have to try that.

We rolled out the mixture and used the Button Flower Fondant Cut & Press, it came in our kits.  It was very easy to use.  There is also a Cut & Press for leaves, I might purchase that.  It was a little hard to get the flowers out at first, but I got the hang of it.  

We also made Pansies.(top flower)  I did not like them at all!  We will learn new flowers next week.   Here are the flowers I made last night:
