Fondant, wire, tape, lustre dust, edible gold paint
What was your inspiration?
Maggie Austin's Fondant Frills class and I had seen a photograph of a beautiful couture wedding gown covered in ruffles and frills and with gold bands.
What are you most proud of?
The bottom tier took a lot of work - I wanted to make the ruffled roses very fine so it meant a lot of layers! It also was my first attempt at Maggie's rose - it needs a bit more practice!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I started making the rose rather late the night before I needed it - I would definitely recommend giving yourself much more time! I also am quite inexperienced in doing flowers so I probably was a bit ambitious trying to make it in just a few hours without enough drying time between assembling the different sections!
