What are you most proud of? Sugar flowers are still rather new to me as I rarely ever make them. I was surprised at home much I actually enjoyed making them and am glad that I managed to put everything together without much damage. I made 2 extra flowers just in case and none of them broke so I was really happy about that. Or maybe I was just lucky :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I have never wired flowers into a bloom spike before this and I was rather worried that I might do a lot of damage in the process. Take things one step at a time. You will figure out how to put things together as you progress and learn to improve in the next project.

Very pretty! I love the planter box. What cutters and veiners did you use for the orchids?

08/07/2013 Flag

Hi Melba, thank you. I used cutters and veiners that are available from my local baking store here in KL, Malaysia. If you are interested in getting a set, you can purchase them online via Global Sugarart or check out James Roselle's class for the supplies link. Cheers
