Hi, Thank you for your comments. I hope the following helps: I have a copy of Alan Dunn's publication 'Creative Cakes. My copy has the inspiration for this cake on the front cover- try and get a look at a copy, the cake is called "Antique gold lace cake." Tape enough wire together to support the finished weight of your flowers and length of your finished decoration I used 2 lots of 2 18g. Shape these to the curve you want. Now is a good time to colour the tape to match your design. With the wires flat on your work surface royal ice your dried and coloured decorations to the wires in the arrangement you want. Use foam/tissue to support them until they are set. When they are dry insert the wire into a straw in your cake. To give a tidy finish at the back, touch up the royal icing with the matching colour and have some extra leaves/light flowers to make it look great from all views. Hope this helps and good luck with your cake. Sue.

Thank you Zurina! The bride who was returning to NZ from Melbourneto marry rang me after the wedding to tell me how delighted she was with her cake as we had made all the plans over the phone and by the internet. We still haven't met. There is a photo on pinterest which was taken at the venue and it shows a tiny peace of fabric at the bottom, this was trimming the cake knife and was the brides maid fabric.. it is a perfect match to the base ombre. Cheers Sue.
