Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Gum paste, peony pedal cutters but hand cut the leaves. Floral wire, dusting powders--most of what was required as materials on this lesson.

What are you most proud of? That I managed to get a dark blue hue

What advice would you give someone starting this project? As the flower is assembled, watch for balance to the petals placing small bits of foam to help separate them as they dry.

What is the dimension of each leave? Do you only use one floral wire for each leave?
