Flower Class With Ruth Drennan

Last Sunday I had the pleasure to take a private class with Ruth Drennan in her house, like I said in another post she is a very talented, humble and famous New York cake designer. Her cakes have been published in a lot of magazines and she was one of the cake designers in the show " Amazing Wedding Cakes" running in We TV. The flowers that she taught me was the STEPHANOTIS flower, I am still learning how to pronoun that word, so far I can't hardly write it. Here are some pics of the process. In this pic we are steaming the flowers, according to Ruth, correct me if I am wrong, the moist comes out and bring shine to the flower. After that we let it sit for a little and then we apply a little bit of pearl luster dust.
I forgot the name of this tools! very useful.

Petal pad with holes( da! pretty obvious)

Here we are drying the flowers. I still have to post the finish flower, but I have been busy this week, so that will be in another post.

Thank you girls for stopping by.

The gumpaste tools are umbrella or taper cones, and the other one is a flower/leaf shaper.

Nice job!
