Sculpting carnations

Step 1

First soften the icing paste by shortly kneading it.

Roll it into a long thin cylinder (1 cm and 25 cm long) and put it at the edge of the working surface.

Step 1
Step 2

Flatten the cylinder by softly pushing your thumb in over the entire length. It must stick slightly to the working surface.

Step 2
Step 3

Flatten it by sliding with the side of a knife over the surface. Make sure it is thinner at the side closest to the edge of the working surface.

Step 3
Step 4

Cut loose from the surface and put in the middle of the table. Roll with a ribbed rolling pin over the entire length of the thinnest side (no further than 1 to 1,5 cm) to make a lined decor. Give the lined decor stroke a small cut every 10 cm. This side will form the typical carnation petals.

Step 5

Roll up the beginning (only 1 cm) of the entire stroke and fold the rest together in loops to form a cylinder. Cut off the excess.

Step 5 Step 5 Step 5
Step 6

Press the centre of the cylinder together like a diabolo: the lined petals will slightly pop out. Cut away the excess paste and press the knot of the flower together. Carefully open the flower petals a bit. Leave to dry
