I chose to make a different kind of center for my wild rose, instead of using the regular steamens I am using a cut center that makes my flowers stand out giving them more depth.
In order to obtain this effect on your center you can use an impression mat or just puncture your gum paste sphere with your veining tool.
First day: center day!
Make centers in advance is a crucial step, especially if your project involves (as mine) a lot of flowers. These are just some of the many centers that I have prepared and set aside to dry. Always making more than I intend to use in case of emergency.
If you love to dacorate your cakes with flowers, whenever you have time off, make centers!
