Oval cake dummies , small foam balls, gum paste, fondant, petal dusts, silver in aerosal can instead of hand painting. silicone molds.
What was your inspiration?
Created for the Great Cake Bake held in Knoxville, TN to support the Imagination Library. While looking at colors, I loved Pantones "tender shoots" color for this spring. I used the isomalt pcs to brighten up the color palette.
What are you most proud of?
I have really enjoyed all of the Craftsy classes that I have enrolled in and really believe these have made me better. I pushed myself on the flowers and really love making them. I also love wedding cakes and believe they should be full of happiness and color. Isomalt work is a new challenge for me and I loved using the molds to make the jewels, butterflies and fern fronds. Would love for Craftsy to have a class for that medium.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make sure you make extra flowers and pour extra sugar pieces. I dropped or tapped and shattered my fair share in putting this together.
