This is a tutorial that I made on how to make gumpaste hydrangeas for cake decorating. There are four different ways to make them that are included, and it also includes a section on how to wire gumpaste flowers and a list of supplies and sources.

Your tutorial purchase includes the ability to join my facebook group to post questions and have me answer them for you. This will give you access to more information in case you need further instruction after reading the tutorial itself. The link to the group will be sent when you get the receipt for your purchase.

Real hydrangea are poisonous and also wilt very quickly, so making gumpaste ones are better if you're using them to decorate a cake. Using this tutorial will give you several ways to make them, from less realistic to more realistic depending on what you need them for.

This is a PDF file and can be downloaded directly from Etsy once your payment clears.

An FYI-- It uses a flower center press that I sell in my shop. This is an optional item, but it makes a nice flower center and makes it easy to do.

You might also want to get an all-purpose silicone petal veiner, which comes in handy for making the veins on the most detailed version.
