I love plumerias, so I decided to share with you how I make them out of gumpaste. What I like about this flower is that it is fairly simple to do and they look so pretty on cupcakes and cakes. These are the perfect cupcakes all year long,whether your having a cool summer party  or you are smack dab in the middle of a cold winter and you are daydreaming of being on a nice warm hawaiian beach sipping a cold drink looking at the beautiful flowers and ocean. I love plumerias.... oh I already mentioned that.  ; ) Thank you for checking out my instructable. Please vote and rate.

Step 1: Getting Started

You will need:

Gumpaste (Satin Ice is recommended)
Small bowl of flour
Ball tool (metal is recommended) I found mine in the clay department at michaels
Small rolling pin
Wilton practice board set (keeps the petals from drying out )
Yellow or pink luster dust
Foodsafe paintbrush
Wilton shaping foam set or a foam pad from your local cake supply store- recommended
Teardrop cookie cutter graduated set or you can trace a template with a paring knife
Small cup of water
Vinyl mat

To make the flour cups(they support the plumeria while it dries)

Use a small cup or bowl, pack it tight with flour. Stick your ball tool in the middle and make a dip in the flour about 1 inch deep.Set aside.You will need one of these for every plumeria that you make. I know you dont want to make 30 of these bowls ,so what you can do is wait til the plumerias are almost dry(about 3 hours) and carefuly set on the table to dry so you can reuse the bowls that you have made.
