Cymbidium Pot Cake

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake The pot is made of dark choc cake with raspberry buttercream filling. What are you most proud of? Sugar flowers are still rather new to me as I rarely ever make them. I was surprised at home much I actually enjoyed making them and am glad that I managed to put everything together without much damage. I made 2 extra flowers just in case and none of them broke so I was really happy about that. Or maybe I was just lucky :) What advice would you give someone starting this project? I have never wired flowers into a bloom spike before this and I was rather worried that I might do a lot of damage in the process. Take things one step at a time. You will figure out how to put things together as you progress and learn to improve in the next project.

What you will need

Hi Melba, thank you. I used cutters and veiners that are available from my local baking store here in KL, Malaysia. If you are interested in getting a set, you can purchase them online via Global Sugarart or check out James Roselle's class for the supplies link. Cheers
