"Laminated" Gumpaste Flowers Video

I'll be the first to say that this is a super lazy way to color your petals, and that it isn't the look that you want for every cake. But my love of printmaking makes me think that this method of adding patterns and photos of petals to the petals is hilarious. It makes the flowers look realistic at first glance, then waxy, then you realize that the surface is flat, then you're just confused.

I've been calling the stargazer petals "laminated gumpaste petals" because they're layered, not painted, and they're meant to trick the eye into looking like the real thing until you look closer.
