Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Hand crafted sugar flowers - SK Florist Paste, wires, colours, etc..... What are you most proud of? The cherry blossom! Most of the petals are individually made (and not a 5 petal cutter). They took 9 hours in total for all three branches. I love this cake though :o) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy the quiet, peaceful process of making your flowers. I have 3 young sons, and it's bliss to have time to do this!
