Gumpaste Mistletoe Tutorial

With Christmas less than a month away I really wanted to do a Christmas / Winter inspired tutorial for this weeks video. One thing that always reminds me of Christmas is Mistletoe. Mistletoe grows this time of year and it always comes out at Christmas hung from doorways or added to wreaths, so it makes the perfect decoration for all your winter themed cakes.

So for this video I am going to show you step by step how to make the berries, the leaves and how to put it all together.

Gumpaste Mistletoe

The mistletoe was so easy to make, I created all the leaves in 3 different sizes and added slightly off white berries covered in confectioners glaze to make them have a slight shine. When you add the leaves together into a bunch the mistletoe really comes to life. You can then add it to the top of your cakes or use floral pics to add the foliage to your tired cakes.

For my bunch I used 30 of the different sized leaves to create this bunch, but depending on how big a bunch you need or if you are adding them to your cake with other winter themed flowers you can alter this amount to make it perfect for your cake.
