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 are you most proud of? I finished!! :-)

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.

Absolutely beautiful. I took the class with Jacqueline Butler. She does beautiful work. I have made her flowers but have not used them on a cake yet. This one inspries me to do so. Thank you for sharing.
