Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Having studied many photographs of orchids I have come to realise they come in so many different designs. So, when it comes to dusting let your artistic flair come out.

What are you most proud of? How well i have managed to produce these flowers at a first attempt following Jamess clear and precise instructions, It gave me confidence and belief I could produce them.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the video a couple of times, then with everything at hand follow James as he leads you through the process. It really is that easy!

Beautiful! What cutter and veiners did you use? I love the colors of these orchids.

I used Petal Craft cymbidium orchid cutter and veiner set, studied a few pics on google images and dusted them to match, Glad you liked them :)
