I first made this tutorial in early 2014 after having made a Christmas cake that featured my own modified version of the sugar ranunculus flower. It was to help celebrate a recent Facebook milestone and to thank my followers for their support of my humble page. It was also my first real, full-length tutorial and I was worried how it would be taken. Thankfully, everyone was very supportive!
Well, two years later and I figured I better get some of my tutorials up on my blog since it would seem, they are not easily found on my Facebook page, despite being in their own Albums. So, I will slowly start to upload my free tutorials each as a blog post, even though I did do a catchall tutorial blog post with links to all my existing tutorials. I guess having them each accessible in their own individual post is just easier all around.
This Christmas cake from 2013 is still one of my fave designs since I tried a lot of new things for me including making gumpaste flowers.
Here are the tutorial steps to help you create your very own gumpaste ranunculus…ENJOY!
