I was asked to teach six 6th grade girls how create gum paste roses, for a slumber party activity. After careful deliberation I decided it would be best to have a class on making roses without venires or cutters. Roses are extremely technical and with six eleven old girls I thought their attention span might be taxed. It was the correct choice, they had loads of fun and I held their attention to the end. Each created their own rose for a cupcake.
I wanted to share the class with all of you!
