Gumpaste Magnolias


                             Real Magnolias:
Icing Magnolias:

Cake found on the web. I'd love to give credit if you can let me know the creator's name.

This is a magnolia example that you can buy pre-made from Gumpaste at
(Go to Flowers then to Gumpaste Flowers).
There are many varieties of magnolias, so however you decide to make them, you won't be "wrong".

  • Use water for 'glue' throughout. Just a dab, not too much. Can use a mixture of thinned gumpaste/water for glue also.
  • Make the flower center using a small ball of gumpaste and covering with #1 tip, royal icing brown dots. Press in hooked-over covered wire (like Little Bopeep's Staff).
  • Roll out the gumpaste, very thin, cut the petals out
  • Vein and assemble using water to glue them together (if making two layers as above).
  • Use the wire or pinted tool to make a good hole for the wire center before drying!
  • Dry petals overnight.
  • Use a dusting brush to dust the yellow starting near the center outward.
  • Make the flat yellow part of the center and place in flower center. You can use gumpaste and 'pull-outs' for the points.

  • Insert the wire with the center on it. Flower now needs to be placed in a former having space underneath for the wire.
