Gumpaste Ranunculus Tutorial by The Violet Cake Shop™

Leave a comment

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.

Hi, I'm Violet, currently a full-time stay-at-home mom of two and part-time cake designer/decorator! I first discovered my love for cake art in early 2008 when researching how to make a cake for my husband's milestone birthday. I consider myself "internet or community taught" having found and learned as much as I could from the many helpful sites, blogs, YouTube videos, tutorials around the net, where people were willing to share their craft. I used every family occasion to practice after that and soon, friends and family were asking me to make their cakes and I have been busy creating cakes part-time ever since. I took an extended break after the birth of my daughter, to spend time more quality time with the kids. I now spend my time creating one-of-kind pieces for special projects and personal occasions, taking the odd order here and there. I currently maintain a popular Facebook page, Twitter and Pinterest accounts and this blog where I share my insights, tips and free tutorials as well as any new creations. I have had the honour of being part of several special Facebook cake community collaborations, with more to come. My cakes have been featured in print in Edible Artists Network and American Cake Decorating Magazines in the US; in Cake Masters, Cake Craft Guide's Party Cakes and Cake Craft Guide's Wedding Cakes & Sugar Flowers Magazines in the UK; and in Australia's Sweet Magazine. I've also been featured online as 'Edible Art of The Day' at Edible Artists Network's blog, as Satin Ice's Cake of the Month for January 2015, and in online magazines or blogs such as Cake Wrecks' Sunday Sweets, the Craftsy Blog, 'The Cake of the Week' on FB, Pretty Witty Cakes' online Magazine, American Cake Decorating's Blog, Satin Ice Showcases, Australian Cake Decorating Network's online Cake Magazine (Joomag) and in Cake Geek Magazine. I've recently begun teaching via online video tutorials having filmed for Pretty Witty Cakes in the UK and Craftsy in the US. I am also a proud member of the Satin Ice Artists of Excellence team. I am constantly inspired by all things around me, particularly fashion, geometric prints, home décor trends and of course, other sugar artists!
