What are you most proud of? The fact that I made these without a tutorial.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Not an easy flower to make but makes a lovely addition to a flower arrangement.

My daughter is having snapdragons in her floral arrangements and I wanted to incorporate those into the cake. Can you share with me how these are done?

Hi Walkinmomma The only book I have found these in is: Alan Dunn's Best Of Floral Sugarcraft, by Culpitt ISBN: 1-74045-680-7 Page 102-104 What I would say, is that is tweaked the instructions slightly to make it work better for me. Also you will find this practically impossible to follow unless you have an actual Antirrhinum to look at and dissect one of the flowers because the structure of the flower is very difficult to imagine unless you have it in front of you. Good Luck
