Now you can get to work on your flowers. Roll the paste, but this time thinner - you can do this by removing the spacers from your pin. As you are rolling, lift the paste off the board a few times to make sure it doesn’t stick.
Choose your flower cutters and cut out as many different sized flowers as you like in different shades. Make sure that all your flowers are smaller than the size of the bases. When you press down your cutter, give it a good wiggle for clean edges - this will make your flowers looks more professional. Lift the flowers with a small knife and push the centre into the dip of your foam drying tray, or egg box to give a curved effect (Picture 3).
While the flowers are still soft, dab the centre with edible glue, stick a pearl onto your flower and let them dry for a few hours, preferably overnight.
