Hi everyone, in this post I show you how to make these pretty sugar/gumpaste pansies. I’ve always loved pansies, but never thought of making a sugar one. I have a Facebook group called ‘Cake Topper and Decorating Tutorials’ and a member was looking for a sugar pansy tutorial. After looking, I couldn’t really find many pansy tutorials, so I decided to make one myself. I hope you like it! If you would like to join our friendly Facebook group, then click here.
The paste I used to make these pansies is my usual favourite Renshaw Flower and Modelling Paste. For most of the pansies I used white flower paste and then coloured them with edible dusts. I did also use pre coloured flower paste in yellow and purple to show another way of creating them. As usual, a list of all the items that I used in this tutorial can be found at the bottom of this page.
While designing this tutorial, it was important to me that I used the minimum amount of tools to make it more achievable to people. That’s why I chose not to use any special cutters and the fewest modelling tools that I could.
How To Make A Sugar/Gumpaste Pansy Video Tutorial
I really hope that you liked my tutorial. In the photo below you can also see a my pre coloured flower pansies. I coloured the paste using PME Regal Purple food colouring paste and ProGel Yellow food colouring gel. You can also see the variety of sizes that you can make. You may want to make yours smaller. I made mine quite large for the purpose of the tutorial, so you can see what I am doing easier. To make them smaller, just use a smaller tube of flower paste at the beginning and possibly a smaller heart shape cutter too. You can see that the yellow pansies are much smaller than the others.
