Classic Sugar Flowers

Peony, Anemone, Tulip

with Nicholas Lodge
Classic Sugar Flowers
Make your cakes petal-perfect with instruction from Nicholas Lodge, sugar artist extraordinaire.

Whether you're relatively new to making gum paste blooms or a pro in the cake biz, you'll find a wealth of useful tips and tricks from a veteran in the trade. Nicholas will start with the graceful French tulip, then build on these techniques for the more complex anemone. Finally, the pièce de résistance: a classic peony in all its ruffled, multi-petaled glory. Even a single bloom in its simplest form is a show-stopper. Add 10, 15 or 20 more wired petals and Wow! – everyone will be talking about your cake.
