Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Gumpaste, floral wire, food safe gel colors, various forming tools - As taught in Jacqueline Butler's Handcrafted Sugar Flowers course. Topper requires some finishing touches that will be done at the venue. This project was more advanced for my skill level, but may be easier for others with more experience.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you anticipate needing a certain number of flower buds, for instance, make that many and then some more! It was helpful to have a good selection of flowers of varying sizes to choose from when creating the topper. If you're like me (and I don't have much experience at designing toppers) I create as I go.

Really gorgeous. I want to make one like this for my Goddaughters wedding cake. Did you insert all the wires into a foam ball or something. I always find that using wires I end up with a really thick stalk and if it needs cutting down for on a cake its impossible to cut. Any advice?
