As one develops a project in sugar like these flowers be sure to take photos. Having a record helps one to improve and actually 'see' where adjustments ion future sugar art challenges can be made. The setting for the photos also help greatly. The purple Iris was photographed with the early morning sun shinning thorugh the window and hitting it just as it made a complimenting shadow. Appealing isn't it.

How did you do the beards? Can't see it close up but looks like royal icing piped thin -or is it something else? Amazing Bobert!

The beards are gum paste. I just took a needle tool and pricked them many times.
