*a student of mine told me that gumpaste tools are available in Divisoria and Quiapo at a very cheap price so feel free to bring your own tools if you want
Ingredients for making the gumpaste and fondant is essential, you need this so you can make your own because it is very expensive to buy pre made gumpaste and fondant. Please bring the ingredients to class, the tools and kits are optional if you cannot find them in your area. However, if you really intend to master this craft, it would be an advantage to try and scour the stores and shops for these tools as they will be invaluable in your learning process. You do not have to buy them all at once, save for them bit by bit as you go along.
-Wilton Gumpaste and Fondant Kit or
-Rose, Calla Lily, Daisy, Cutters *these are items from the Wilton Gumpaste Kit
-gumpaste tool set* ( the ball tool and the dog bone are the two most important in this set, try having them at least in your decorating caddy)
-thick and thin fondant shaping foam, this is where you put the cut flowers, for shaping and forming, go to your groceries and find some plain sturdy foams, not the soft kind if you have no access to the WILTON BRAND FOAM.
-decorator brush, small angled spatula, Round cutters*
-fondant mat, or plastic mats, place mats that are clean, plus thin smooth plastic chopping board for your work place
-fondant rolling pin an 8-9 inch will do, fondant rolling pins are the plastic kind, because they most likely stick less but any rolling pin will do
-pizza wheel, ruler, toothpicks, icing colors
-damp kitchen towel, paper towels
-clean old stocking, preferably unused and white, small plastic sieve or sifter
-containers for projects, box for flowers, cling wrap and ziploc bags
Gourdo's sell these kits, also the courses are held in their stores but it is so expensive, you will basically be doing what the manual says and these manuals can be ordered in the internet for $4-5.00 only. I took the Wilton classes and the teachers pretty much read on from the manuals which was also given to us. I incorporate not only the Wilton lessons but just about everything there is to know from a beginner's standpoint.

SITE STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION, THANK YOU
CELPAD (BLUE) THIN AND THICK MODELLING FOAM, PAIR OF PLIERS FOR WIRE, BRUSHES FROM 000 TO 12, CRIMPER. GET AT LEAST SMALL, MEDIUM AND LARGE BRUSHES.YOU NEED THE MODELLING FOAM TO SMOOTH OUT FLOWERS AND LEAVES. I AM ON THE LOOKOUT FOR A SIMILAR MATERIAL IN THE HARDWARE STORE, ACE ETC., BECAUSE WILTON IS EXPENSIVE AND THEY WEAR OUT EASILY.
MODELLING TOOLS, THE BONE TOOL, VEINER, DOG BONE ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT TOOLS. ROSE CUTTERS, DAISY, CALLA LILY.
PIZZA WHEEL, FRILL MAKER AND FONDANT SMOOTHER, LEAF CUTTERS, MORE ROSE CUTTERS ( NOT PART OF THE LESSON BUT IF YOU FIND THEM ON SALE, GRAB THEM)
ROUND CUTTERS AND WIRES, LUSTER DUSTS, RIBBON CUTTER, PLASTIC FONDANT ROLLING PINS AND FONDANT MAT ( I USE ALSO SILICON BAKING MATS, OR PLACEMATS FOR SMALL PROJECTS)
DESIGNER STENCILS, GEL AND LIQUID FOOD COLORS, ICING NAILS (YOU NEED AT LEAST #7), PARCHMENT PAPERS AND PASTRY BAGS (#10 IS PERFECT). IF YOU WILL DO THIS PROFESSIONALLY, I RECOMMEND WILTON'S PARCHMENT TRIANGLES BECAUSE THEY DON'T TEAR AND BURST EASILY.
SPATULAS, ICING COUPLERS, TYLOSE C, A CHEAPER ALTERNATIVE TO GUM TRAGACANTH. GUM TRAGACANTH MAKES THE GUMPASTE DRY BONE HARD.
ICING TIPS any tip number will do... see Wilton's basic icing tips for starters.
