Wilton Course 4: Advanced Gum Paste Flowers- Lesson 2

It's show and tell time again! This is what I made in lesson 2 of Wilton Course 4- Advanced Gum Paste Flowers. I have to say I almost skipped this class, horrible headache, but I am glad I went, otherwise I wouldn't have learned to make the Briar Rose.
First we made quite a few Ivy and Lily Leaves. These will be for our final project. More may need to be made at home depending on the final design, which I haven't decided on yet.
The Briar Rose is very easy to create. The only time consuming part is sticking 15 little yellow stamens into that tiny ball, which should be yellow, but I just left mine white. There is a green calyx underneath the flower which cannot be seen from the photo. In the last class we will be painting all of our flowers with petal dust, but I think I like this flower in all white. We ran out of time in class and were not able to start the Stargazer Lily Petals, so we will make lots of those next week, along with the Stephanotis and Sweet Pea.
