My First Gumpaste Flower

Gumpaste? What IS that?? Well, basically it is like play dough made out of sugar and a few other things. It sticks to your hands (at least my hands) when you're trying to work with it and so far it's a pain in the butt. I was trying to work in the food coloring and it made a huge mess. Folks use it to make everything from fancy flowers to little dots or whatever you want to decorate a cake. Hopefully it will be easier next time. At any rate, here are my very first flowers.
