One cake’s flowers were made with gumpaste and the other with modelling chocolate. Each has its own benefits however. Gumpaste tends to dry out extremely quickly and will sometimes crack. Gumpaste is often used to make flowers and decorative pieces as it can be rolled out very thin. Modelling chocolate is similar to a clay like substance and is easier to smooth out your seems with. Both are very pliable materials and are fantastic to use for decorating cakes.
