Thanks to all the ladies that joined us last night, including a new member that read about our Guild in the Mandarin Newsline!

For last night's meeting, we decided to experiment with rice/wafer paper. We started with flowers and made our way to feathers. We cut, punched, and dipped the night away. Here are how some of the members' feathers turned out...

They were all beautiful and, just like real feathers, each one was unique!
We hope to see some cakes in the future that use these new skills.

If you couldn't make it to the meeting, but still want to try out this technique, you can follow the same instructions we did, found here.

And for the flowers, you can check our Chef Rubber's site and click on the "Contemporary Introduction to Wafer Paper Molding" booklet. Just a warning, Lisa makes it sound and look a lot easier than it is!

Good luck on all your wafer paper adventures and 
hope to see you all at our June meeting!
