" I enjoyed this series so much...thanks alot"

Thank you very much just love it.

Hi i'm having an awful time making roses i'v made about 30 some the middle sticks up to high, i did make some thick ones and they came out nice, i don't notice your pedals flopping once they are on, maybe i'm making them to thin, i'm using as little water as i can, i'm not sure if my base is to big i tried to watch and it seems to be an inch, and my bases end up falling or slipping down, Thanks for your help Diane

i've just started making gum paste roses... getting better w practice. come join WonderHowTo cake decorating forum.

each time i watch you video and it's been alot what size cutter are you using, another thing i just noticed are you using the small ones to start i''m using a smaller one for that maybe that's my problem, i also have been using 10 pedals is that right Diane

Thank you for having this video it has helped me with the roses. I also work with clay and I also tried that technique with the clay and it worked out beautifully

Thank you. I really enjoyed watching this video. Now I really understood how to soften the edges of the petals using the baller the way you did, they look more life like. Next time I will do the roses I will let you know how I went.

I like to thank you. I was having a hard time making a rose. After watching your video I am getting a little better. I hope you keep having videos on how to make other flowers. Thanks again!

Donna you are really talented, thank you for taking the time out and doing video tutorials. I am new at this and I can say from watching your teaching methods it has help me to learn quickly! Keep up the great work. You derserve to have your own T.V. show. You have a great teaching voice.

May I ask where did you purchase your flower cutters (not the one from Wiltons) that you show toward the end of the video? Do you start to color the flowers once they are completly dry? Also, where do you buy the non-toxic chalk, are the flowers edible? Thank you
