Here are some details about my project:
Category Cake Decorating
Material Gum Paste

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Fondant, gum paste, gel colour, edible gold paint


What are you most proud of? I did this on a dummy to try brush embroidery and the 3D flower for the first time. I just do cake decorating for fun and love learning new techniques. I think this is a fairly simple yet very effective way of adding style to a cake.


What advice would you give someone starting this project? I think it is worth practising first before using this technique on an actual cake unless you do a lot of decorating, which I don't. Next time I would curl the tops of the inner petals in a bit more and improve on the brush embroidery with a bit more practice.


you did a lovely job. so impressing.

where do i find a peony cutter....i've looked all over with no luck in canada

Hi - I did a quick google for you - Both Flour Confections and Cake Mischief in Canada have peony cutters to buy on line. Amazon also have some. Best option though may be to purchase direct from Colette Peters website if you want hers. She ships internationally as does Globalsugarart in the U.S. which is where I ended up getting mine as I had some other things I was getting from them at the time. Good luck!
