Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Wedding cake made for friends is a white almond sour cream cake with mixed berry buttercream filling and covered in vanilla buttercream. Cake is wrapped in ribbon and lace selected to match the bride's dress. Peonies and leaves are all hand made form gumpaste. What are you most proud of? I loved doing the peonies - they exceeded my expectations, especially once they were on the cake. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you create a production schedule and give yourself plenty of time to get it all done. Don't leave any step off no matter how simple as you can't make up extra time at the end if you've forgotten something. Also practice making your flowers ahead of time if you've never made them before,

Q&A with stormrider4477

macdonaldb asked:
Your flowers are gorgeous did you learn how to make them from this site
stormrider4477 answered:
No - I used Edna de La Cruz' DVD "Sugar Peonies" to teach myself how to make them. I'm really hoping she does some videos for Craftsy - she makes learning something hard seem easy!

Just got my Scott Calrk Woolley peony cutter through the past (shipped from Us to UK. I hear they're good). Risking a divorce, but thinking of getting them out tonight and having a go. Hubbie is getting fed up of my sugar flower obsession.

My hubby feels the same way , but oh well! I find it very therapeutic and restful! ;-)
